Comcast 50Mbps Cut Soon
Comcast is about to launch a major price cut on its fastest Internet access, a leak indicated on Tuesday. Normally $140 per month, it's reported by a source for BBR to be dropping to $100 and will likely do so sometime after June 20th. The cost would apply to those who already have at least one other Comcast service, though Internet-only service would still drop to $116 per month at the same time.
The claim comes just as Comcast is believed to be upgrading to 100Mbps and would likely let the cable provider put the twice-as-fast service at the existing price point. It's not evident that the company will alter its 250GB fixed bandwidth cap despite the increased speeds.
