Broadband prices create confusion

In response to the Oct. 18 column by Ben Heskett, "High-speed hijinks:"

The biggest question I have is why broadband has not come down in price. I think price is the reason there has not been more rapid adoption of broadband access.

It leaves me wanting EarthLink (my home/personal access provider) to lower its rate to something manageable.

It may just be my own quirky perception of finance, but at the short-lived $39 per month I was ready to sign up, only to find a few months later the price had gone up to $49 per month. For some reason I can justify $40 bucks a month, but not $50. Thanks for listening.
