ISPs Drop Gigabit Service Pricing from $300 a Month to $70 a Month

EPB, the Chattanooga, Tenn. supplier of 1-Gbps service, has dropped its gigabit service rate from $300 a month to $70 a month, a reaction to the price umbrella Google Fiber apparently is creating.

EPB also converted all existing customers with 100 and 250 megabit-per-second services to the the gigabit speed.

Separately, Utopia, which operates a wholesale gigabit network in about 10 Utah cities, also says its retail ISP partners have dropped prices for gigabit access from about $300 a month to $65 a month to $85 a month.

To the extent that Google Fiber intended to influence investment in faster ISP networks, and create new price points, Google Fiber seems to be succeeding.
