Bad "The installation was rescheduled!"
Overall "Not as consistant as Comcast !"
|Pre Sales information:|
Value for money:
First of all they sent me an email informing me that the scheduled date that was originally set up was not available. The day of the installation the installer was 1.5 hours late (however Astound did call to inform me). I had Astound over a year ago with HD then switched to Comcast. The internet consistancy with Comcast was better than Astound, but the HD picture quality with Astound is superior with less noticable artifacts of compression.
Update 11/16/09: Cable TV hasn't really had any issues with an exception of a few lock ups on the cable box. At that point I just unplugged the box for 5 minutes to reset it and all was good again. I have had more than 5 times I have lost internet connection and it has taken more that 10 minutes each time to obtain sync again. At this point I will go back to Comcast. When I had Comcast I never lost sync once during the year that I did subscribe.
Update 02/28/12: As of over a year ago, I have been back on Comcast since I use Netflix. Comcast has a 250 GB cap, whereas Astound gives you a measly 100 GB cap
