hitting data caps even faster?
Is Comcast going to completely disregard its proposed data caps at some point? Or will that come back -- and create Gigabit subscription tiers someday? The 250GB data cap Comcast isn't quite enforcing now would be presumably reached pretty quickly with a Gigabit service.

Re: Glad to see This....But....
It is not competitive at all--far from it.    It is,, right now, one of those "Nice to Have" gigs that probably will not see as massive as adoption.   I view it as fascinating that this is even in the cards at this stage--I can't help but wonder about this:  How much is enough?

Re: Glad to see This....But....
I'm wondering how competitive the migh be if "Gigabit Pro would start at $299 per month." That seems steep to me and what would be the percentage of the market needed to make a profit on the investment?

As I read through this and welcome this commitment, they still have some fundementals they still need to address too as noted in this not so long ago: 

Can Comcast fix its customer-service problem? Comcast is hiring 5,500 customer-service workers as part of a "multi-year customer experience transformation," as well as adding tools to reduce wait times and simplify billing. Some of those strategies have been tried before by Comcast, without much success, notes Colin Lecher. "Comcast has a less than sterling track record when it comes to delivering on promises, especially when it comes to customer service," he writes. The Verge (5/5), CNET (5/5), Fortune (5/5)

Re: Still Not Me
KBode, that's good news!  Actually, that makes sense on the PR - and I am certain their earlier plans were assuming the merger, which would have brought in the west coast.  If they don't set up some "showcases", someone else might wake up and see the opportunity.

Re: Still Not Me
They're claiming 18 million potential homes by year's end, and they seem to be announcing markets in a staggered fashion to maximize PR impact, so it's possible there's some west coast love in the lineup still. :)

Re: Still Not Me
Mitch Wagner, agreed.  They are discriminating against the west!  It definitely is an "uneven" rollout.  Now that Comcast is not pursuing the merger it looks like the west is left off the map.

Still not me
Everybody in the US is going to have gigabit Internet before we do. Even these guys:

Re: A month too late for me
What pricing did they promise you, Carol? Because so far (outside of a website leak) they've not specified just how much this new two gigabit service is supposed to cost.

A month too late for me
When I called Comcast to tell them I was leaving and why (getting AT&T GigaPower) they said if I stayed I could have gigabit service from them also. But their pricing was a bit higher.
