It is no surprise to most people in the US that Internet access is expensive. It gets even more expensive when you want that access to be fast. Connections in the 40-100 Mbps range can cost $100-200. RoadRunner Lightning, for all of you Time Warner Cable and Brighthouse Networks customers is around $100 for a whopping 40 Mbps. One California company, Sonic.net, is trying to change that.
The company has been around since the mid-90s prodiving standard DSL service to customers. They later branched out and offered what is called bonded DSL, essentially 2 lines each providing 20 Mbps, bonded together at the modem to produce 40 Mbps speeds over DSL. That service has run their customers around $70 per month (much better than the cost for Lightning). While this is a great deal, Sonic.net has decided to up the ante.
What are they doing? Hit the break to find out.
