$53 for 10/1?

The benefits of having a monopoly.

And how much is Verizon DSL - they offer..but can't really supply 1*15 DSL and they force you into a phone line.

The "lite" is now 39.99 for 1mbit up and 1 mbit down. I would have like to see 256k/1mbit for 24.99 - that would be the sweet spot. its enough for Facebook and Netflix on a Roku (2 dot quality).

Speculation is Google Fiber in KC will cost $70-$90 for 1Gbit and $50-$60 for maybe 100-300Mbps. Will be interesting to see how TWC responds, which is in the KC market.

even at $90 thats a great deal for 1000/1000. $50-$60 for 100-300m aint bad ether. I can't wait til I'm done with college and can move the 30 minutes away the fiber is. Bit of a drive back to college for when I start my second degree, but dang it that will be worth it!

You can pay the 1gig but won't achieve it in real word internet.

It's gotten even worse in CableOne territory.

I pay $53 per month for 10/1 here and I'm on a grandfathered plan.

$53 per month now will either get you 50/5 on a contract (after it expires you're basically stuck on a 5 meg down 500 kbit up plan; no joke)

..or it'll just get you the 5 meg plan with no contract. Again, no joke.

I suppose there's one benefit to TWC; no caps (yet...)

I don't think so, because I know people who are paying less than that because they have the "triple play" deal and I don't

I'm paying $60 for 30/5 through TWC, what a rip off. I'd drop them if/when they do that here except, since it's a monopoly WHERE AM I SUPPOSED TO GO?

First Verizon's killing unlimited data then TWC jacks up price and next will probably be putting a cap on the home data connection.

As time goes on aren't we supposed to move forward? We're moving backward by capping an unlimited resource. I love how they can just screw us and there's nothing we can do about it.
