Yet, here, where I live, only 47 road miles from New York City, I have a cable company who sells me metered (yes, METERED) DOCSIS, for nearly $100/month, 35/3. The limitation is like 100 GB/month or something (the equivalent of the amount of Netflix or AppleTV my kids watch in a weekend) No alternatives, no FiOS, no nothing. Well, I can get 3/.768 DSL if I please.

Someone, please help me.
