$50 would of been a more competitive introductory price imo.
It's not about the speed, it about the price. JMO
the $300/5megs for 7 years is going to be a huge draw though
I pay less than $120/month for TWC (even though it's gone up a few times since my initial 12 months was up) and I get about 20-25 megabit down (and 1 megabit up), as well as a sports package... so, hopefully Google's $120/month option includes NHLN, CBS and NBC Sports, etc (I think they're all listed, but not sure if any are premium); or else it would be a tougher decision. I like the service and they were pretty responsive about the couple of issues I've had... and it's not like I need
a 1 gigabit internet connection, so even though the geek in me is all "
", the practical side of me is kind of glad I can sit back and see what others think before it comes to the Northland.
I thought their introductory price would be closer to $50/month, but I like all of the options... if speed matters, $70/month isn't bad for a connection that's 100 times faster. If you just check email and facebook, $25/month for a year and then free for 6 years after that is awesome.
