So... Google lays the ground work to expand into two more cities with 1 Gbps speeds. AT&T gets scared and offers to build the same service. Time Warner claims no one wants 1 Gbps internet and begins charging more for a lesser version of service,

... seems legit! thumb.gif

Time WarnerBrothers Cable is robbing my area as well. My neighbor pays for 30mbps and gets 12, then I uses up a chunk of his bandwidth. No way in hell I would pay for TWC's services.

Not surprising really. They can do what they want in the towns they have a monopoly. It's happened all over the country. In my area, it was TWC or AT&T DSL at a blazing 6mbps for around $60. I moved to the second largest city in Kentucky, and it's either Insight (which is now..you guessed it. Time Warner) or AT&T with the same crappy DSL. Only now, AT&T is calling their DSL "fiber" U-Verse. Except it isn't. It's DSL with some fiber in the network, far down the line.
