I am in an area that has not yet been upgraded to DOCSIS 3.0 so the speed for the retention price of $24.95 per month is 768K Down. I can get 3Mbps down from Centurylink for $24.99 per month if bundled with voice service.
I'm not complaining about $10/mo broadband service.
I'm criticizing Comcast for acting all heroic by claiming they're delivering "$10/mo broadband" services to low income families. When clearly, 1.5mbps does not meet the broadband definition published by the FCC.
I don't think Comcast wants to be heroic. They are doing this primarily as a goodwill gesture to satisfy legislators. Comcast is a business and I'm sure their shareholders wouldn't be happy if they were giving away decent speeds at a steal of a price.
