The new cost isn't exactly bank-breaking, but it will offer up a significant amount of money for the carrier. Comcast claims these new funds are needed in order to make up for the costs of its new DOCSIS 3.0 service.

I suppose it'll all depend on whether or not DOCSIS 3.0 turns out to be worth it.
