Comcast (Nasdaq: CMCSA) thinks subscribers might be willing to pay $105 a month (bundled with cable service) to travel the Internet at 105 Mbps. That, at least, is what the service provider has been quietly testing as a price point for its new DOCSIS 3.0-based Extreme 105 service.
If you're into numbers--and even if you're not--the price is only $5 a month more than what Comcast wants for Extreme 50 service (and we'll leave it to you to guess how fast that is) and is comparable to Cablevision Systems' (NYSE: CVC) $84.95-$104.95 per month price of 101 Mbps and Suddenlink's $107 for 107 Mbps.
