As promised, Comcast is starting to offer the fastest Internet in the nation — for a jaw-dropping $300 per month.

That doesn’t include an installation fee of around $500, plus another $500 for “activation.” Then there’s an added cost for “equipment, taxes and fees.” Oh, and don’t forget the punitive fee if you break your two-year contract.

That means Comcast’s next-generation Gigabit Pro, delivering data at 2 Gigabits per second, could cost $1,300 just to start.

That’s 200 times faster than most current high-speed Internet networks. It’s twice as fast as Google Fiber, which is slowly expanding across the country, but Google offers its über fast Internet for $70 a month. You only pay the $300 construction fee if you cancel.

You could theoretically download an entire music album in three seconds and a feature-length movie in 19 seconds with Comcast Gigabit Pro. You can send data just as quickly.

Still, despite it being a cable service provider, Comcast Gigabit Pro doesn’t include TV service. And this super high-speed Internet is “limited… to a single outlet.” So, you better have good WiFi.

The new service is available in Atlanta, Chicago, and select major cities across California, Florida, Indiana, Michigan and Tennessee.

    HAHAHAHA!!!! Oh MAN… Comcast, you never cease to amuse everyone. First trying to spin Net Neutrality as a bad thing (along with all your other provider pals), and now high speed service at a price point that’s on par with a month’s worth of groceries, not even counting the install fees. You are so out of touch with consumers it’s not even funny.
