Minneapolis-St. Paul is the first area of the country to get DOCSIS 3.0 internet access, courtesy of Comcast. You get 50Mbps down / 5Mbps up speeds for $150 a month. That’s not quite consumer-level pricing and is still slower than Japan, but it’s a start.  Considering Comcast’s recent degradation of HDTV signal quality however, I’m not convinced they’re willing to upgrade infrastructure as needed.

Powerboost 12Mbps == $3.58/Mbit
Powerboost 16Mbps == $3.31/Mbit
Powerboost 50Mbps == $3.00/Mbit

Absurdly higher, but cheaper per Mbit.

Now…I wonder how quick they’ll ban you for torrenting too many GBytes/Month. 🙂
