Is There A Hidden Broadband Price War?
from the it's-all-in-the-speeds? dept
In other words, if prices remain constant, but your speed doubles, isn't that something of a price decrease? Radia chalks this all up to competition in the market, but it should at least be admitted that the speeds (even these higher speeds) still pale in comparison to other countries where there is much greater competition than in the US, where most people still are limited to only two real choices. Either way, as someone who's still stuck on a home connection that runs around 500k (below the new 768k cutoff for "real" broadband) despite being in the center of Silicon Valley, I'm still not convinced that these greater speeds are so readily available yet.
