Also, if we're looking at most people taking slower/cheaper plans and using that as a measure of what people want, we may also want to look into the fact that people having a copper line home phone on POTS in rural areas are spitting chips that come fire season they may have no access to the outside world.
To be fair, there's no solution to that. Fibre to the home is no solution during fire, especially with NTDs and Lithium batteries. Powered nodes are no good either.
I think at the moment the only thing that can survive fire is Unifi AirFiber and that's only because it can be dozens of km away from the fibre.... but still... no real solution.
