Rates rise and speeds decrease/don't move Anyone else seeing this trend?
In the US many ISPs have upgraded to DOCIS 3....but the price is up there so very few people are going to pay for it...which begs the question...why bother? If your ROI will be minimal...why not just jack the rest of the customer's speeds up?
That is, after all, competition. Oh wait.
On the other side of the fence, I am a business customer with a contract. If Comcast even THINKS about jacking my rates, they will be breaching the contract and say goodbye to a customer. If I were still a residential customer, I would ask, no demand a contract locked price. If the ISP is unwilling to give one, I would contact the AG because then obviously this gives freedom to ISPs to do whatever wacky things with the prices as they see fit (usually they increase and stay increased). This is ESPECIALLY important when you have a single cable provider in a given area.
Oh well, what do I know.
