How much do you think the physical cable to your house and the routing equipment costs???

Not sure, can you please tell us? How much does the pole rental cost throughout an entire plant, the line maintenance techs and all the equipment including truck and gas, call center buildings, staff, remote buildings for CMTS and associated equipment, advertisements, peering costs to offload the traffic and the list goes on and on and on.

This isnt just stringing a piece of CAT 5 to each house and plugging it into a 80 dollar Linksys router you know.

I guess you did not read my post.
Providing internet is cheaper than providing cable tv, but yet they basically charge the same per month for each service.
Their plant is already paid for from the cable TV, internet is just a bonus.
They make a fortune off the internet.
Your behavior is inconsistent with your desire to be treated like everyone else.
