An update on Fibernet

Fibernet folks contacted me on chat... They told me that the original thread had turned into a mess and they wanted it removed as it was causing them issues with I suppose bad PR and of course some statements which did not work well for them. I was told that they are changing their strategy and wanted to start fresh. I moved the original thread to a non public area and started this new section for them. I am yet to see them post anything here so I decided to clarify about the original thread. They told me that they now aim to create local networks connected to a centralized server for hosting and sharing files. And this server would be mirrored with other servers around the country (using the internet) with other LANs that they might/would establish. I did not discuss much about this new strategy on chat as I wanted them to detail it here on the forum publicly. I had no discussions related to their new business model and how they aim to make money from it. From what I see, having a centralized server for sharing data sounds like a bad idea wrt piracy as they would be hosting content shared by people on their own servers. I suppose they would want to reveal more about it here.I wonder how this is going to work out with respect to data deduplication and how the users would be able to share privately and of course if everything is public, it is a legal nightmare for them and their users.

TBH this doesn't seem like much of a strategy change based on my discussions with them Fibernet. Where else do I post this? | Mathew Carley

It's not an altogether bad idea, and if it can be made to work, then awesome. Maybe they're thinking along the lines of a CDN, but getting it super-close to the users rather than in an ISP NOC. I for one will be interested to hear more and discuss more with them about it too :)

since they have not bothered to post here even though they told me that they would. i would imagine that they just played around with me to get the original thread removed. thankfully i did not delete it and it is lying in an inaccessible part of the forum. so if they turn out to be a disaster in the future, i can simply bring it back for public viewing.

Though they started posting and seems to come with better management and plan...

But Their arrogance and attitude of 'Knowing everything' is still there.. If they want to be accepted on forum they need to learn to respect and accept criticism.

They should be ready to answer every question either is good way or they can deny to answer, but they should not be insulting other in anyway...

Keep the thread alive untill you are sure that they are behaving properly...

P.S. - If I were at place, I would remove the thread after I get above assurance instead of removing the thread first ...

i would say the same thing again. their responses are getting appropriate responses by the forum members... i see no point of censoring any discussions here related to Fibernet (or Hayai for that matter). :)

that's what mathew is trying to convey here but it is not being received appropriately. :) i mean if mathew is wrong with any of the facts, they can respond with correct facts. :confused: i am not seeing that happen here though i am not actively monitoring the discussions in this forum. :)
