Cable Company strangle hold

Reading articles like this http://www.businessinsider.com/cable-companies-ganging-up-on-hulu-2009-2 and comments from Comcast http://www.forbes.com/2009/02/19/cable-internet-video-bandwidth-business-media_cable.html?feed=rss_business where on one hand they 'crow' about their new 60Mbs service they also state that no one will be able to download more than 250gb per month.

Well my fellow New Yorker friends…..I hate to say this but I think it’s time for me to move to the West Coast. I just found out Paxio is offering residential internet at 1GB/s upstream and downstream for only $245 per month.


Yes that is 1,000Mbps both upstream and downstream with no usage limits unlike the crap that TimeWarner and Comcast are proposing with us locally.

If you think you would like to sign up for a service like that here in Manhattan then can I suggest you send the email I pasted below showing them your support. Lets break the New York cable company monopoly and get on with using the internet the way it was meant to be used.

Hi, I just found out about your residential 1,000Mbs internet access for $245.00
Can you please tell me when you are coming to New York as I would love to sign up for this service and finally be done with my cable company.

Yours Hopefully,
Dean Collins
