Project Triangle: Speed, Quality, Price. Pick Two, because you can’t have all three

2.3.2011

I put a question on FaceBook about going to Verizon FIOS for internet access this morning. I got all kinds of answers. Most feedback was that it was reliable and fast. The others were from people complaining about their customer service. How it wasn’t any good, they can’t get stuff fix or can not understand the person etc.

It basically comes down to the concept ofย  the “Project Triangle” , where it tells states that one can’t have it all. Since I wanted speed at a good price, customer service is not so good. If I wanted the best service, fastest speed, the price will have to g up to hire better service people. Bottom line, you just can’t have it all. I got the bellow information from Wikipedia. For the most part I find it pretty true in just about anything in life. It’s quite entertaining as well. ๐Ÿ™‚

Example Boats:ย  Lowest Price, Best build quality, Fastest delivery to you:ย  Pick Two as you can’t have all 3.

  • Design something quickly and to a high standard, but then it will not be cheap.
  • Design something quickly and cheaply, but it will not be of high quality.
  • Design something with high quality and cheaply, but it will take a long time.

Bottom Line, I will compare Verizon FIOS to my Current Cable provider and let you know the results.
