what a rip off

comcast price for 105mbps is allready about the price for 300mbps on verizon and its funny how they add 5mbps just to be faster all i got is 4megs and would be happy with 30mbps

hmmmmmm...

Really? They add 5Mbps to the 300Mbps just to one up Verizon? Is that 5Mbps really going to make a noticeable difference? What can 305Mbps handle that 300Mbps cant (especially these days)? It would be funny if Verizon switched up and offered 500Mbps instead of 300Mbps..

Anyway Im perfectly fine with my 30Mbps... 50Mbps and you wont hear a peep from me for the next several years..

As others have pointed out, what website serves content that fast?
It's like loading boxes on a conveyer belt. While the conveyer belt
may be able to move 305 boxes an hour, the person loading them
can probably do 25 an hour. You'll still only get 25 boxes an hour.
I'm on a 6mb connection (Coast Communications) and I don't
download large files. I can stream video, but I rarely do.
Bottom line is, I'd be paying for speed I'd never use.

You need to look at it from the perspective of multiple users. That is who the faster speeds tiers are pushed pushed at by Verizon. A family of 5 or 6 that has every online. You get enough bandwidth so each person has more than enough to do what they want.
