Re: Maybe not.

In Response To: Maybe not. (uberfoop)

: I mean, if it's already dirt-cheap service on account of the low quality,
: maybe Spark's already "paying half price" without actually
: paying half the price. Or maybe it's not dirt-cheap but there are other
: factors which make it legitimately expensive to provide reliable service.
: Maybe Spark lives in an active warzone, and the service provider needs to
: regularly send out ninjas to repair hard connections.

In which case, as you said, he is already paying "half-price". Either way, we can clearly see that it is a tremendous limit of marketability if the Always-On policy is in fact as extreme as we think. Of course, that's entirely MS's call. If they want, IMO, to shoot themselves in the foot, they can be my guests. Disappointing, sure, but I'm not standing in their way.

: Maybe Spark lives on the far side of the moon, and the internet is only
: active half the time because it's transmitted by a personal satellite orbiting the moon.

In which case I could easily help him get the LRO to bounce a signal to his satellite. Not trivial, but easy once you get the hang of it. :P
