Re: I'll beat the 3/768 dead horse

said by MASantangelo:

What about my college apartment, consisting of 8 college students (including myself). 3/768 is not nearly enough. Cablevision has been supposedly providing us 30/5 (supposedly because, well, at any given moment we get 3/1 due to 'node saturation') and I can tell you: It is NOT enough.
True enough, but ... Split the cost of the Internet 8 ways, each contributor kicking in just $20 a month, and you could probably afford the $160 a month for a 50/5 connection. Would that be enough to sate your desire?

For some of us, though, $160 a month is just too much to bear. Knock it back to $40 a month, or so (I prefer $30 a month, but don't know if that is achievable), and I'll sign up. But no way I'll pay even $80 a month for Internet. I'll just find something else to do.

Whereas I'd probably eat a $100 per month internet bill if FiOS came to town (I'd buy through DSLExtreme to get the $100 rate). Though I'd probably downgrade to 35/35 when it comes out...different strokes for different folks.
