Back when Google Fiber first launched, Time Warner Cable, the incumbent ISP in the area, went into panic mode. The ISP even began offering cash rewards to anybody who had information on Google Fiber’s activities
. It was all a little seedy, and made it look like TWC was more concerned with crushing Google Fiber in any other way besides directly competing.
Well, it seems that TWC has finally realized that the only way to beat them is to compete with them, and is now reportedly offering faster speeds at lower prices to its subscribers in and near Kansas City. The Consumerist
is reporting that one such subscriber recently received news from TWC that his monthly bill was being cut while getting a 50 percent speed increase.
