If you’re a Cablevision subscriber with a need for more bandwidth, you’re in for a real treat. Like, you might need to change your pants. Just announced a few seconds ago is Optimum Online’s new Ultra service. This takes their existing Boost service to a whole new level. Want to know how fast? How about 101Mbps downstream and 15Mbps upstream. Fast enough? Well, it’s now the fastest residential internet service in the entire country. Even better is the fact that come May 11th, the Ultra service will be available to every single Cablevision subscriber across their entire service area. You might be wondering what the pricing will be on this… it’s going to be available for $99 a month. Existing subs are paying around $60/month for Boost at 30Mbps/5Mbps and Verizon’s FIOS service is around $150/mo for 50Mbps/20Mbps — seems incredibly fair right? Think of all the DiVx movies, applications, games you could...

Hey Verizon, you just got pooped on.
