I currently have 30/5 Mbps service from Cablevision for $55/month. Now I see they are rolling out 101/15 Mbps service!

http://www.optimum.com/online/ultra.jsp

Sent a request for a rep to contact me. It must be expensive and/or have limited availability right now if there is no info online.

Well we are falling behind in some service markets but Canada up until just a couple years ago had the best broadband infrastructure on the planet for home users.

EDIT: Wait maybe best broadband infrastructure should read best broadband penetration

I meant to update this - thanks for the reminder! Laughing

The new 101/15Mbps service is $100/month plus a $300 activation fee! Yikes

No thanks.

Their base service is 15/2Mbps at $45/month.

The service I have is 30/5Mbps at $55/month.

I doubt most of the Web can keep up at 101Mbps for me to get any bang for the buck out of it!

And yet DSL is still depressingly slow and expensive. I hate Bellsouth.

Either way... I still hate you. I pay almost $50 a month for ~1mb/800k plus 5 static IP's.

That's as good as it gets here... I wanna cry.
