Congress, Used Car Salesman, Comcast
Maybe sometimes a cable company does something right? Maybe. Wait and see. Comcast says it will upgrade its fiber system so that residential users can get 2 Gb/sec internet service. It'll start at 1 Gb/sec, but the technology will support 10 Gb/sec download and 1 Gb/sec upload speeds.
$300/month, plus installation and activation fees of up to $1,000.
Google Fiber in Kansas City provides "only" 1 Gb/sec and charges $70/month. Installation is $300, but if you commit for a year the installation charge is waived. So, even though slower, I would still prefer Google Fiber over Comcast. And, living here in DHS, I will probably be faced with that choice in 10 or 20 years. Planning ahead.
