Is Comcast "Economy" Internet $24.95 a month without TV? Is it even available without TV? I ask because, by your comparison, you would have to include the cost of cable TV service with the Internet price, if you had to have even Basic TV to get "Economy" Internet; closer to $38.51 for "Economy" Internet in that case.
Good catch. I missed that!
I pulled out the price list that Comcast sent a few weeks back for the new pricing as of Nov. 1st 2008.
Here's what it says: (sorry I have no scanner to post the actual thing)Online service with comcast video or voice service
Economy (768/384): $24.95 (That's the same price as before. No change.)Online service only
Economy (768/384): $40.95 (Previous price was $39.95 since 1/1/08)
Limited Basic Service (Video) locally (North, West, & Northwest Philadelphia) costs $14.90 (No change since last price list of 1/1/08)
*As a side note. I hadn't noticed this when I got the new price list, but the HSI only
prices have increased for all tiers:
6/1 up from $57.95 to $59.95
16/2 up from $67.95 to $69.95
768/384 up from $39.95 to $40.95
*HSI + Video or CDV remain unchanged and the same as in the OP.
So ya ... the Economy Tier is even more ridiculously priced than I thought before
