    I just wish they would bundle the phone and internet thing at a decent price. I don't need TV.

    if you ask Comcast they will tell you that you are getting a great bundle price.

    I am totally fed up with Comcast internet. It goes out everyday from 15 mintues to 1 hour. Nothing they can do but to monitor it....yeah right. that is what they told me 3 weeks ago when they were out. I have had new lines run from the pole to my house, a separate line for the computer and TV, new modem and it still sucks.

    I need to know of some good DSL companies to check out.

    My AT&T DSL seems fine, but clearly does not match the speed of cable

    I tried out clearwire when i was going to school in Texas. I hated it. Seemed like I could only get a connection half the time, and when I did manage to get one, my roomies wifi setup ran better than my clearwire one, so I just started taking his and dropped clearwire.

    Comcast isn't an angel, but rarely do I have any issues with them

    I may give them a call just to see what they have to offer. If it works ok then I will drop cable internet.

    what service are you using for TV..Direct TV or Dish Network?

    A few weeks ago I turned the WiMAX device in my laptop on just for kicks [have never even tried it] and somehow picked up a Clearwire signal and was connected without any subscription nag or anything....based on the coverage map not even supposed to be in my area [Concord Rd].

    Was very odd.
