Journal Journal: Why can't I find fast cheap broadband? 3

I've been living in South West Miami for 3 years now. I've had Comcast cable the whole time. I'm now looking to ditch comcast and go with another provider. I have fibre services to the curb from both AT&T and Comcast. My home phone is over fibre, my cable tv is over fibre. Why can't I find an ISP offering speeds faster than my cable service for a comparable price? My cable service gets 12/2Mbit bandwidth. It's burstable to 100Mbits. However, it's Comcast. I was looking at fibre services and one company wants to charge $1200 a month for a 10Mbit line. I might wait until AT&T starts offering 50/50Mbit lines. That could be a while though.

Why, with fibre to the curb, can't I find fast cheap broadband?
