I guess it depends on the size of the system and how bad management
I live in the Media One area of Atlanta, and they have most of atlanta
to rebuild( a few million customers, I think), and they have no
competition (as far as I know of) so it could take forever to upgrade
to broadband for us.
I WORK, however for Comcast, which only covers North Dekalb county in
Atlanta, about 40.000-50,000 customers, we HAVE cable competition in a
large part of our area from Bell South (which put in all new plant,
broadband from the start, cable modems, the whole 9 yards right off
the bat), and we had to get done quick. Weve been done for a year, but
we havent finished the reverse sweep yet, so we should have cable
modems online in a couple of months.
