I've had Comcast cable modem for 2 and a half years now and love it. Comcast as a company, imho, blows. They sent out a notice localy back in September to notify customers of rate changes. Things like remote rental, cable set top box rental, channel packages, etc. went up or down (!!!) by less than .25 per month. With one exception: cable modem subscribers that do not subscribe to cable tv have a $10per month rate increase! If you are a cable modem subscriber that does subscribe to cable tv there is no change. I choose to for over my $120 month to DirecTV because of their superior service and offerings. I found this shocking. Unfortunately, we have no alternatives for cable around here. Makes me want to go buy a super soaker and go postal down at the Comcast office. HHmmm maybe I will on my way home from work tomorrow. sorry, just venting. cheers!
