What we all know...

yes, it's a PR stunt. But, it's also a government-mandated PR stunt (after the big govt. FAIL of allowing the NBC-Universal acquisition in the first place).

If Comcast had any true altruism in its corporate body, then they'd offer a "free" tier like Google Fiber's 5mbps: you pay for the cost of an install and you get free access after that at a reasonable broadband speed--which we'll say here is 3mbps [as opposed to Google's 5mbps]. OK, everyone who thinks Comcast will go for this, raise your hands... anyone? ...anyone? [Bueller?]

Are you serious? Google fiber is the biggest publicity stunt of all. They only need to do this in a few neighborhoods.
