Equivalent if you can use all the BW.


I like CableOne's fineprint of "up to 50 Mb/s". It's often <  50 Mb/s.

Heck, I'd pay 80 bucks a month for 1Gb/s.


That would be the equivalent of Cable One charging 4 dollars per month for their 50Mb/s

CSpire has posted their package prices for their much anticipated fiber-to-home service.


While no cities on the Gulf Coast are currently planned, it doesn't much matter.

Their prices are well above either ATT's or  CableOne's. So, folks like me who were hoping
CSpire would bring some price competition will be sorely dissapointed.

They appear to be cherry picking the market, just looking for customers who want and can afford
a premium service.
