Comcast to Bring Speedier Internet to St. Paul - Bits - Technology - New York Times Blog

Hmm...

The technology, Docsis 3.0, is a bandwidth hog’s dream: Internet users can feast on download speeds of up to 50 megabits per second and upload speeds of 5 megabits per second. Comcast’s chief executive, Brian Roberts, demonstrated the technology at the Consumer Electronics Show earlier this year by downloading a high-definition copy of the movie “Batman Begins.” It took just four minutes.

The service is pricey. In the Twin Cities, the new tier will be offered at $150 a month, as compared to an 8-megabit-per-second download tier now offered at $53 and a 6-megabit-per-second download tier at $43.
