Analyzing the best prices for 1 Gbps service from ILECs, MSOs and municipal providers

Gigabit pricesThe rollout of Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) Fiber in a couple of U.S. markets has reverberated across the nation's telecom industry. The 1 Gbps fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) service has prompted numerous traditional ILECs, municipal providers and cable MSOs to launch, or consider launching, similar services. Google's high-speed broadband service has also set a major pricing benchmark: a stand-alone Gigabit symmetrical service is $70, while a 1 Gbps data and TV bundle is $120 a month. This is a compelling proposition considering that Comcast offers a double-play bundle for $89.99 a month for a promotional 12-month period. Pricing for 1 Gbps service varies widely by service providers across ILECs, cable and municipal providers. For more, see this special feature.
