    I juggle all of these companies. Treat em like the whores they are. From my experience, you have to move on after 2 yrs, because they all eventually rape you

    I've had Fios, Direct TV and presently have comcast.....Verizon is offering me a pretty good deal. I forget whether I liked them or not

    Opinions?

    For realz they rule pretty hard. I call em every time my bill goes up and threaten to switch companies. They usually up my speed and drop my bill.

    Comcast keeps sending me letters to "upgrade" to a wireless gateway in order to enjoy faster speeds. What they really want to do is turn my house into a wireless hotspot. Fuck that.

    This is true BUT they do not use your bandwidth. They dedicate their own pipe for hotspot traffic. I have no issues with that.

    I don't care about that. They haven't said for certain that the public band will have its own IP address. If it doesn't, and some douche parks outside my place and does something unsavory, does the FBI come knocking on my door?

    Plus, I have no wifi devices, so why bother?
