I'm sitting here reading all your post and all you can complain about is how the Comcast phone network went down for 6-8 hours and your complaining about the politicians? I have a very sick relative in N.H. and I could not get a hold of her or her neighbor because she too was on Comcast. What would happen if there were an real emergency and all New England comcast customers tried to call for help? I am so sorry I left Verizon at least I know they could handle a flood of calls. Shame on me for trying to save a buck. once my Comcast contract it up I'm going back and I'll make sure all my relatives do the same.
