    Just install that free wifi already and forget burying all those cables.

    I get 110mbs down 15 up with comcast for $112 a month and I'm fine with it. Much more than the average household gets.

    I agree. $160 /mo for internet service is far too much especially when Japan is rolling out 2Gb service for $50 / Mo.

    What I would love to see is the US Govt. everywhere rolling out the free wi-fi service that they talked about recently.
  7. Only $79 if bundled with other services? if you have gigbit internet, what other services would you possibly need? phone and tv can both entirely be replaced with internet.
