I have a friend (a Small Business) that is currently with Comcast Business for Internet and Phone service and getting the 22/5 bandwidth option which seems to be fine for them. It has on occasion gone down for a few hours a couple of times a year.
Recently SureWest stopped by and tried to sell their Fiber solution but for the same speed as Comcast Business they want approximately $100.00 per month more. SureWest is selling a 15/3 option for slightly more than the Comcast Business service they are paying for currently.
SureWest claims their Fiber connection is better and that their “Slower Speed” option is actually faster than Comcast’s connection. The problem is my friend can pay the $100.00 a month more to Comcast and get a 50/10 option!
My question is:
Is the new SureWest Fiber service worth the change for what on paper seems to be slower speeds? If so, why?
BTW, SureWest also wants him to sign a 3 year contract as well.
