Re: [Speed] May have to switch to Comcast

Thanks NetFixer for the further clarification. Right now at $36/month my 12/2 Comcast HSI is reliable and fairly stable (knock on wood) so no need to change.

Checking this site shows a price of $60/month for the lowest speed tier ('Starter' 12Mbps/2Mbps):

just like he said above....

said by NetFixer:

Business Class Starter service is $59.95 per month (and it does not require that you have Comcast TV or Digital Voice service for that price).

so what was your question?

that has been the standard price for biz class anyway...

it's the perks of not having caps, 4 hour repair window, short hold time, knowledgeable techs and all justifies that price.

If you are using the Comcast Business HSI to generate some kind of profits then the $60/month is all justifiable in my view. On the other hand for just residential/private use then I take my $36/month (12/2 tier but in reality 24/3 for me) without any problem or hesitation.

in the Memphis market....

resi performance 20/4 is priced at 59.95

resi performance starter 6/1 is at 49.95

biz class performance starter 12/2 is at 59.95

since I cut cable / satellite tv, I needed internet uptime. while at it, I thought, I dont want caps since I've seen my usage near or at the 250gb limit, and I said, priority or better tech support would be nice.

so I went with biz class 12/2. for me, it justified the price. if I could find a way to profit off of it, that would be like icing in the cake.

for the bandwidth that our household uses, the 12/2 biz class fit perfectly not too mention I don't need to think about going over caps totally.

asjamias you make good points based on what Comcast HSI prices are in your area. I will count my blessings for the cost of $36/month I am getting for my Performance tier speed!

Just curious, how many static IPs can you set up with the biz class performance starter?

I myself didn't have a need for them. What I do have is what others call here as sticky dynamic...

To my knowledge, the largest available block for all of their HFC based SMB business class services is a /28 (13 fully usable IPv4 addresses).

For more than that, you would have to get their metro ethernet or enterprise class services (and there are no $60 per month plans in those choices).

And soon, under IPv6 you'll get AT LEAST a /64 -- which is 18,446,744,073,709,551,616 IPs, which should keep you busy for a while.
