Clarify

ATT and VZ do care about residential broadband, but only with their UVerse and FIOS products.

That being said, i feel like the cable guys have double the speeds every 2 years for the last decade, and that trend seems to be continuing.

And the price. Not literally "double" but they keep raising the price, even though the cost for byte (to them) keep falling.

I am able to get 15/1 from DSL. For the same price as 20/2 from Time Warner.

How many places does Verizon want to lay FiOS? That's the problem.

This is why we have caps and overages, not because of network congestion, but because there's nothing stopping the cable companies from just gouging their customers.

Where will they go? The internet is basically crippled on DSL.

Yeah, the sheer horror, browsing the internet at a lousy 1.5mbit/s to 3.0mbit/s!
