unless you have a specific speed need(ie work,nerd joy etc) or you have money to waste the average person isn't going spend $70 a month on internet if they can get it for $30. JMO
Well... the thing about that though... That 10MB connection through Road Runner jumps in price to $59.99 after that first 12 month promotion period. And that price has went up every year for the last few years. I know because that's exactly the plan I have, and my bill is $63/month for standard internet only.
So after that first year of TW, you're only looking at an extra $10 difference between TW's 10MB connection and Google's 1000MB connection. And TW's price is sure to raise more in another year.
TW even words it so they can raise the price however much they want after that 12 month promotion. They won't even quote you what the "Standard rate" will be once your promotion is over. They simply say "After the promotional period ends, you will be charged the standard rate that is in effect at that time. We suggest you contact your local office at the end of your promotional period." What kind of shitty business is that?
Considering Google's prices, and the fact that TW has tons of little surcharges and equipment fees that they don't include in their quotes, Google's prices are more than competitive...
