Broadband bragging rights could go to Charter Communications, which is ready to launch a 60 Mbps service. It would apparently be the fastest available to U.S. consumers. No details yet on price or when, or where, the service will appear from the cableco.
60 Mbps would top telco Verizon, which sells 50 Mbps service through its FiOS fiber-optic service. Comcast last year started rolling out 50 Mbps service in some of its cable markets at a monthly cost of $150.
