    Lost my promo rate and the bill jumped to $160/month. I'm not paying that ever for TV we hardly watch. Told the dude lose the TV and just give me internet. He's like how about we bump up your speed and give you extended basic TV for $54/month for 12 months. I'm all word since just internet is 59/month. Check out my latest speedtest :jj: If you have them call and say you're switching to dish network or some shit. Guarantee you get a better rate.

    maybe if and when they merge with TWC you will get a better deal: TWC charges $116 for 100mbps and 4 Primary channels, etc.

    Not a big deal really. I wouldn't pay for 50 without this deal.

    You want time to fly get a promo rate from Comcast. A year will feel like 3 months.

    Plus they don't care. They know they have a monopoly and satellite sucks. You tell them you are switching and they don't care, Once you switch they will offer you everything but until then they won't do shit.

    You ask if you can cancel the tv part and just keep the internet and they tell you it will only be $2 cheaper a month.
    You ask if you can lower your speed on the internet and keep the basic tv and they tell you it will cost $10 more a month.
