Great interview on RadioBoston with Susan Crawford who discusses how a handful of American cable companies have a stranglehold on high-speed internet service. That monopoly leads to slower speeds, higher prices, and less competition. http://radioboston.wbur.org/2013/01/29/broadband
This discussion is one of the many reasons why netBlazr came into existence. In our own way, we are making a stand against Comcast who is practically colluding with Verizon to divvy up the market as monopolists and charge every more for their services. Comcast is averaging $150/mo from their customers and increase prices about 4% every year.
It doesn’t need to be that way. Other countries have figured this out and netBlazr is going to continue to fight for consumers in Boston.
