Comcast is no better

In our market, Comcast charges $60 a month for standalone internet. They always talk people into getting basic TV service for $15 and internet for $45. I don't see how Verizon is any worse in that respect. Both companies are sending the message that if you don't have at least 2 services from them, it costs too much to do business with you.

I'd rather have broadband and basic cable bundled than DSL and landline since I have more alternatives for VOIP and cell than I do for TV service OTA. With basic cable, a cable card, and TiVo HD I could record all the broadcast networks in HD, something I can't do OTA.

I booted Verizon two years ago since it seemed they really didn't want to compete with TWC in my area and they've done nothing but confirm my assessment sine then.
