For those prices they can keep it

I currently pay $55 for 24Mb and I feel that is too much, at these prices they can keep it. If Google can offer 1GB for $70, what the heck is wrong with AT&T.

Indeed! Way too expensive. I considered the 45 Mbps tier...until I saw the price they were asking for it.

It's a lot cheaper than TWC's non-promo price for 50/5.

A) In my area 18 Mbps is $56 IF you can even get it.

B) Google can offer their service for $70 because they aren't actually trying to make a profit from this venture. Yet.

Must be nice. I pay $73 with the gateway rental fee for 24Mb. It's an additional $10 for double the speed. Not bad.

I'm not interested in paying the $100 installation fee at the moment.

or because it doesnt really cost more to provide 1gbps over 18mbps.

You can keep repeating this all you want, but one way or another Google will make money on this or they wouldnt be doing it.

Or because they own their own backbone with their own fiber with immense amounts of capacity which interconnects with many major metro areas where they have tons of peering and very inexpensive transit due to the fact that they're purchasing extremely large amounts of transit.

AT&T is not a charity like Google.

AT&T will waive the fee if you talk to the right group.

If you honestly believe Google isn't actually trying to make a profit you have no idea what you are talking about.

That is like saying Verizon isn't trying to make a profit because they dropped $21B on FiOS and haven't recouped it yet.
