Well at least we're finally seeing some advancements in the internet industry in the USA. Can't wait until the price gets lower though.

$150 is waaaaaaaay too much

Well some company has to step out of the box sooner-or-later, either that or we would be paying for slow(currently high-speed) internet forever. The prices will no doubt go down. The fact that they are only making this immediately available for the Wisconsin and Minnesota area shows that they are seeing if the anyone wants "super high speed" it or not.

They won't get me to pay that much.

If Verizon Fios version comes out way cheaper then that and it's in my area I'm switching in a heartbeat.

Also $50 and under please.

Living stateside (and in the Mpls./St.P metro area) I agree, but not re-throttling their tiers is a deal breaker for me. I love the advancement and if I was not going back to school might be tempted(not enough though). I would love to see them throttle their 8 meg to a 10/1 (8mbps/756 is a bit low imho for what I pay)connection at the same price, intro a 25/2 or 25/3 at around $90/month and keep their 50/5 around its price point until they make their investment back and reduce all tiers after. I applaud the effort but $150 a month is a bit too steep for most people.

Waaaay Too much and I love nigh bandwidths.

They'll think about lowering the price if it's widely ignored. How many people do you know willing to pay $150 a month($1800 a year) for internet?

JsonHenry3424d ago

What stinks is if we were in Japan this service would be only $30-$45.

gaffyh3424d ago

OMG, I thought UK internet was expensive, but we would pay about £35 I think or cheaper.

Probably not. $30/month might catch on though...lol :)

Crazyglues3425d ago

but 150 is like just getting robbed by your ISP company...

Thepro3183425d ago

u must be kidding anything over 60 bucks is to much it be 500GB per sec i wouldn't pay 150 dollars a month for that

Sarick3425d ago

I have frontiernet service and they only offer decent download/uploads if there is competition in the area. We pay $50+ for 1meg down and 128k up.

Feel lucky they won't roll out higher speeds unless there's competition. They probably used government funding to roll out the DSL.

Haha screw that. Don't they get 100mbs connections in Japan for like $30? Comcast blows.
