Re: Comcast

In my area Comcast is actually the best choice...

Comcast will give you their "16/2" service for $29.99/mo for 6 months, then $42.95/mo for 6 months and then $62.95/mo ... but as we know they will typically discount back to at least $42.95/mo on a regular basis.

FIOS has no new subscriber discounts, cheapest I can get it for is $69.99/mo.

I cannot get DSL because when I did have FIOS they clipped my copper and will not re-install it.

Wireless is prohibitively expensive when you consider caps. If were faced with only a $69.99/mo FIOS or $62.95/mo for Comcast choice I probably would switch over to wireless, just because it would probably work out to a lower overall cost to share my byte bucket between a smartphone and personal hot-spot (or maybe i'd just tether)

Obviously variable. Comcast won't give me a /32 static for any price, and charges a business premium for a /29 static.

I've got 15/.75 (could be 12/1 with Annex M in force), a DNS zone, a /32 static, all for $26.48.

But Comcast $62.95 is their unbundled price, yes?
