I'm an inventor and I'm against patents.
Savitex has a patent on cannabis.
"We rent the space in the R.O.W. from the electric company; ask them for that money, if you think it's important."
If you had to pay what it's really worth you'd be out of business in a blink.
So the electric companies are subsidizing the cable companies?
I get 15 Mbs from Comcast for $20/month - $1.33/Mbs. And $.08/GB (if I used all available).
That doesn't seem too far out of line given the generally larger distances and lower average density of the USA.
Comcast gives you 250 GB/month in its plan and you can track how much of that you use.
It is significantly more than most providers. And I recently got a free upgrade from 10 Mbs to 15 Mbs.
Actual speeds vary according to time of day (traffic load). I'm pretty satisfied with the service. And they throw in up to 5 free copies of Norton anti-virus.
