    Here is my view on those prices:

    No problem with the internet. In Europe I pay appr. $20 for DSL 6000.
    Pnone I don't need. I use VoIP
    For US TV they would have to pay me - hopefully enough to pay for the internet, LOL.

    That would be a consumer friendly approach.

    That's a lot of money. How about $19.95 for unlimited.

    How about Limits? I'm allowed 250gb per month. It USED to be unlimited. It's one thing to pay 80 bucks for the service, another to keep on paying for every byte you use.

    I've considered that, but I loathe and despise DSL in all it's various forms and iterations. All it is, is a glorified ADSL line. I set up one of those between a nightclub and the radio station KUSF in San Francisco, it was for Mono Broadcast. For stereo, you have to have TWO lines!

    When I was the only Broadband user in my County - I had fast upstream AND downstream - After a year, they capped Up at 1.5mbps - Eventually inreased it to 3, then 6, but then they applied the usage cap about 2 years ago. I've had this service since early 1997.
