    Only $25.99 for what I have.

    $174.99 is ridiculous if true.

    I have the 15 mb service and for hd television w/dvr that records 4 shows simultaneously, voice and internet it's $140. The network happens to deliver to me about 30 mb down and about 6 mb up. That's fantastic. That's more than I'm paying for. The individual price for internet only for the 15 mb service is $57.99. Keep in mind Comcast is not based in Tennessee rather it is based in Pennsylvania which explains why Ryan has a decent value. If I could download 20 mb over Comcast here I'd ignore the sub 1mb upload speed especially at that price but it's not that way in Tennessee. It's more like 4 or 5 mb download on it's best day and barring any bundling package the Comcast cable internet service is about $50... Sad thing is they make claims like it's 10 or 12 mb download but the truth is the coverage is spotty and the network is prone to lag or will go down all altogether at peak times. How many times a day do you typically have to power cycle you modem/router? You just have to be able to appreciate how terrible Comcast actually can be in this area before paying $7 dollars more for 10x as much sounds as awesome to your ears as it does to mine. Plus, I like the idea of the network being 100% fiber all the way to the house where the new network box was installed. From there category 5 cable runs to the router location and rg-6 co-ax runs to the dvr. The television reception is amazing. It redefined hi-def for me. I used satellite services for a long time and was happy with them for the most part but the new fiber LAN blows it away. What's crazy about the dvr is that it's so small and does so much so fast. Channel surfing is back. It can tune the channels as quickly as you can push an arrow key just like the old cable tuners. I was surprised by that. I was especially surprised when it turned out the dvr was made by cisco.

    I am Comcast at home and run about 25down at the moment. But yes, that's impressive.
