Maria, after starting to write what may have been incorrect info I "Googled" it and found Read Morethis: "In the few markets where Fiber currently exists –Provo, Utah, and Kansas City, with Austin up next — Internet service costs $70 a month, and Internet plus TV is priced at $120. The up-front “construction fee” and equipment charges can run to several hundred dollars, although Google waives most of that if the customer keeps the service for a year or two. In addition to Atlanta, local cities under consideration are Avondale Estates, Brookhaven, College Park, Decatur, East Point, Hapeville, Sandy Springs and Smyrna. Across the county, Google is looking at a mix of major cities such as Phoenix and Portland and smaller communities such as Chapel Hill, NC, and Palo Alto, Calif." I also read that Smyrna is on the short list. Another source: http://www.wsbtv.com/news/news/local/google-fiber-may-expand-atlanta-superfast-internet/ndWrc/

I do think/wish that Comcast rates could be lower, but I am not ready to paint them as dishonest. Read MoreT he service that I signed up for several year ago clearly said that it was a reduced rate plan for a year, after which my fees would go up. In addition, the service that I received back then is WAY less than what they offer to me today. I can watch movies/shows on my iPad, iPhone, computer, etc..etc. I am quite happy with my Comcast service and will not be switching any time soon as the closest competitor isn't a competitor. AT&T and their poor internet speeds are not an option for me. I LOVE my Comcast internet. I pay for a certain speed, but I get WAY more. I average about 55 mbps and that is simply better than what \anyone else can offer.

Hello Todd, I understand what you are saying. What happened to me is totally different. In theRead Morefirst 30 days they said that I had chosen a plan that cost more than what I had chosen. I was told that is what their record was showin. I chose a $99/mo. plan and the bill for the 1st month was $384. I clearly read what the total bill was for, and it was ridiculous. The same complaint of overcharging was written on Comcast's Facebook page many times. My daughter was charged for programs that they never chose or watched and they told her the children must have done it. Eventually they removed the charge.
