    I think the service (internet) they provide is great. Fast, hardly any outages. Customer service sucks donkey dicks though. Had to clarify something before paying my bill over the phone last week, and was on hold for 20 minutes.

    My Time Warner Cable goes down all of the time, the modem needs to be rebooted constantly, and they can't tell me what's wrong with it. Gotta a tech coming out today, I'm gonna demand free basic cable for my troubles.

    buddy of mine has a comcast modem/router. he pays for it, 3 or 4 dollars a month on his bill. after a couple of years they sent him a letter saying it was paid for, he now owns it. 2 months later they disabled it saying it was old, and needed to be replaced. hes paying for the new one now.

    Comcast is bait and switch with their xfinity tv adds.
    Had a year contract with them and before the year was up they upped my monthly fee by $38.
    They were also down about twice a month and it usually took a day or two before getting it fixed.
    They are a big powerful company, own NBC, have the congress in their back pocket, so they do what they want.
    I have had WOW now for about two years and they are cheaper faster and rarely are down.

    Had AT&T for years, but it sucked, so I finally switched to Comcast about 4 months ago. It sucks just as much..... :mad:

    They used to have local people answering phones to answer questions and address issues. Now when you call, you wait 30 minutes, and someone in the Philippines named "charlie" answers. it sucks ass

    I dropped Comcast as soon as ATTUverse got pushed out to our neighborhood about 4 years ago. greatest day ever. Comcast is just the absolute worst company on the planet.
