Comcast will soon offer 2Gbps Internet service for $300 per month

Whatever connection you have at home, it probably pales in comparison to what Comcast will soon be offering through its Gigabit Pro service. The provider is set to offer a huge 2Gbps connection, a pipe that will see you downloading at over 200MB/sec, for $300 per month.




Considering Google Fiber costs $170 per month and provides you with a 1Gbps pipe, this price is not too bad at all. But, you'll be required to sign a 2-year agreement, with an early termination cost and up-front costs for installation ($500) and activation ($500). There are also other charges, such as "equipment, taxes, fees and other applicable charges" according to Comcast. Google only charges $300 for its "construction fees" on its Fiber service, while you're shelling out $1300 to Comcast to get up and running on its Gigabit Pro service.




The availability of the Gigabit Pro service is also locked down to just a handful of cities, as you can see above.
