Comcast to upgrade to 100Mb service

Not cheap, but soon
Thu May 28 2009, 10:01

A LITTLE BIRD singing on a box on the telephone pole outside my window is saying some interesting things. The box it is sitting on says "Comcast", and the bird is chirping away about an imminent upgrade to 100Mb service.

Previously, all you could get is 50/20Mb service, locally here in Minneapolis, MN it costs $189/month. The bird says that any day now, Comcast will double that to close to 100 by a likely 40Mb, but the cost is unknown. Given Comcast's deep respect for its users, and openess about its practices, a first born is likely the entry price.

In any case, look for it soon, things are getting much closer to 'fast enough' every day. Now if they could only get cheaper, and the DPI folk strung up, life would be good. The bird laughed when I mentioned that, I didn't know they could. µ
