This photo shows speeds you can get from Comcast if you call them and ask for this secret deal. At least it’s a secret for the moment.
You see that 257 number? You can get that for $70/month with a 2 year contract with Comcast if you call and ask for it. For a little perspective, I’m paying $52/month for 25. So for $20 more a month I can get 10x the speed.
Why is Comcast doing this? Google Fiber is coming to Nashville and it’s rumored they’re going to be making their service available soon. When is soon though? Google Fiber speeds are 1000 Mbps. 4x this new speed Comcast is making available.
Comcast is trying to get the jump on Google and tempt you into signing a 2 year contract with them so Google doesn’t steal you away. For some, a bird in the hand is better than one in the bush.
I know a number of people who are flocking to it now. Who knows when Google will make their new plans available and they want faster speeds now.
Personally, I hate Comcast. They make my job so much harder than it has to be and I can’t wait for Google Fiber.
The 25 Mbps is fine for me for now. I’d rather not be locked up in a 2 year contract with a company with one of the worst reputations of customer service in the country.
Either way, I wanted to let you guys know what’s available if you want to jump on this. It’s really not a bad deal. Until Google is up and running….
