As an Installer for the Evil Empire I can tell you they will be offering at least 1gbs service in WA state later this year. I believe price will be roughtly $190/mo. Sadly other than viewing pages I would say 99.9% of the people who get this service for personal use cant take advantage of it as their computer physically cant handle receiving that much information.

As someone who uses a TON of data each day/month and has the equipment to handle higher transfer rates, I'd love to upgrade my Comcast to 1-gbps. Don't need 2-gbps atm, but would love a symmetrical 1-gbps boost pronto.

If I can get gigabit at a reasonable rate I would be willing to lower my virtual torch and pitchfork. I still won't approve of their merger though. They have enough local monopolies as it is. They have a long way to go to undo their bad behavior.
