Despite the big push to launch gigabit Internet access services in the U.S. market, that is only part of the story. Just as important is the boost in speeds at levels below 1,000 Mbps, at price points that many consumers will find compelling, compared to a gigabit offer.
The “101-Mbps” tier presently costs $55 a month, down from about $100 a month in 2009.
Cablevision, for example, appears to be launching new consumer Internet access tiers at 200 Mbps and 300 Mbps, up from the 100-Mbps tier it already offers. Services for business will be launched at 250 Mbps and 350 Mbps.
