Rocket Fiber to charge downtown Detroit residential customers $70 per month for Internet service

Initially, the city's downtown business district and residents will be offered service; other neighborhoods located in the so-called "7.2" — Corktown, Midtown, and Woodbridge — could follow later, depending on demand.
