Comment: Hoping competition drives down prices (Score 1) 411

The town I currently live in has one viable broadband option: SBC DSL. While the service and price is pretty good IMO (I'm currently paying $36/month for 3mbps down/384kbps up) another choice would be good...

About a year ago the local cable company got bought out by Comcast. Comcast is now promising cable internet by the end of the year.

I'm hoping this will cause a little competition resulting in lower prices and/or improved service.
