Re: thought that competition would lower prices
said by Chiyo:not much you can do when there is no choice; I can only get cable for broadband - no dsl, no fiber, no BPL, no wireless.
Everyone (cable and telco) knows that people will pay so they continue to raise rates, every year we bitch and moan about prices but did any of us quit using high speed internet or cable TV?
and it's pretty clear from the rate increases that two wireline cable TV competitors isn't going to discipline prices.
all in all, broadband and TV pretty fvked up in the U.S.
It's time to go back to rabbit ears.
All companies will charge as much as people are willing to pay (market will support), or as much as they can competitively get away with.
