Re: [Rant] Comcast Treats Long-Time Customers Like Garbage

said by FWIW :

Ten years ago, Comcast HSI was $42/mo for 3Mb service which worked out to $14/Mb.

Today, I get 36Mb service for $63/mo which works out to $1.75/Mb.

Basically, the cost per Mb is 1/8 of what it was 10 years ago. Seems like a bargain to me.

Don't forget to account for inflation. That's $1.38/Mb in 10 year old money Or put another way, your $63/mo today is the same as $49.63 ten years ago. So setting aside inflation, you are paying $7.63 more (1.18x the cost) than you were 10 years ago, and you're now getting 10x the speed.

Inflation. It sucks.
