Doesn't the fact that there is no one better (other than marginally) underline the competitive problem we have in this industry? They all screw over their customers and get away with it.. why? Government granted wire-line monopolies.
I am so happy that I am not a comcast customer. And if I was I wouldnt think twice about dropping their shady service.
I encourage others to do the same.
All good and wonderful sentiment, until you see how much faster their service is than the only other competitor that's near in price range in a particular location (high speed DSL does not reach many areas that Comcast does, for instance, mine, in which Comcast averages 2 times and peaks 5 times as fast outbound and averages 10 times and peaks 20 times as fast inbound). Of course, my limiting qualifier is "in a particular location": one could always move to someplace else where other ISPs are available, and I have done so a few times, but for some reason I'm holding on to stability in other aspects of my life. Probably not a wise decision, though.
