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.
