Re: 'I'm Probably Not Going to Leave the House,'

Actually, it's more about the price and the pathetic cable service most Americans are forced to endure.

Without their overpriced TV service, Comcast demands I pay $62.95 for a 20mb DL and 4mb U/L service.

This is the main reason im (and i would venture a guess, alot of people) happy to see this service released.

My area, its comcast, as Telco has or the Verizon DSL i currently have.

Verizon is raising prices (im currently contemplating Comcast)

So lets look at the big picture

Verizon - 3M/768k = 39$
Comcast - 20M/4M = 63$
Google - 1000M/1000M = 70$

I honestly cannot see how anyone can really say anything negative about the service at that price point compared to other services, that is directed to the poster above who says it's overkill.

It IS overkill. But I wouldn't complain.
