RadioBoston: Low-Speed, High-Priced Broadband

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.
