Comcast Launches 50Mbit Internet Access (Very Fast)

Today Comcast released very fast internet to subscribers who would like faster speeds than anyone else. For those who are interested will incur a charge of $150 per month on their bill. However, Comcast is not the first company to do this. Verizon FIOS (what I have) has been offering 50Mbit for quite some time with limited availability to highly competitive areas, like Boston. Comcast will cap the upload speed to 5Mbit while Verizon allows for 20Mbit upload speeds.

    Correction: Verizon has offered FiOS in Boston *suburbs.* In fact, it’s avoided offering FiOS within the actual city of Boston like the plague.

    @ AdamG
    Thank you for the correction, I was not aware of that. I figured that if it was in Boston suburbs, it would be inside the actual city limits, apparently not.
