Jbumi commented on Raspberry Pi helps angry customer live the dream of bothering Comcast all day:
Good for him! These companies shouldn't be allowed to get away with this crap. What happened to truth in advertising? If the speeds are that different, can they get away with charging you for something you're clearly not getting?
Here in NY, TW Cable is going to scramble their tv signal. You won't be able connect your tv just through the screw-in cable line anymore. You'll be required to pay approx. $3.50/month per line for a "digital adapter". This may not seem like much, but multiply this times number of cable subscribers plus average 3 tvs in a household. So say there's a million subscribers - that's over $10 million a MONTH they're going to rake in.
These regional monopolies are fleecing us.
