Verizon is preparing to offer Internet access at speeds of up to 30 megabits per secondWhoa!
The article goes on to say that the Verizon speeds are actually 5, 15 and 30 megabits per second, with 30 costing $200/month.
Comcast is going to bring everybody up to 4 megabits:
Comcast... plans to offer another round of free speed upgrades to customers in all 343 New England communities it serves during the week beginning Jan. 26. Its most popular service, which offers 3 megabit downloads and 256 kilobit per second uploads for $43 a month for customers who also take cable TV, will be upgraded to 4 megabits down/384 kilobits up.Since I'm paying an extra @10 a month right now for 4 megabits, I wonder if I'm going to go to 5?
