Default Re: I hate my broadband company

Aside from the bandwidth cap, I can't complain too much about Comcast. Their Internet service is fast, and in the three years I've had it, I can count the number of times it's gone down on one hand. Their digital cable is good quality, too, though it's a pain in the rear because you can't record more than two shows at once, and the cable box's hard drive is on the small side. We've contemplated switching to AT&T since you can record four shows at once. However, you need a receiver for each TV (which naturally costs more). In addition, once you add in an Internet package of comparable speed, there's no cost savings.

With the stranglehold Comcast and AT&T have in the Chicago area, I doubt we'll see Verizon FIOS any time soon, if ever.
