new price points..

just a couple of months left until google fiber puts these high prices to shame..

however it is a trend in the economy writ-large.. charging 300+% prices of what a product should go for.. poster child being gasoline prices.

It's called profit margin. If you owned a business you would seek to maximize your margins as well.

Sure, but according to at least one governer's opinion utility companies (and from there you can extrapolate incumbent telcos too) do you have god given monopolies.. there is a PUBLIC interest that must be served properly.. or NOT AT ALL by the vendor
