Re: [Rant] Comcast Treats Long-Time Customers Like Garbage

said by FWIW :

Ten years ago, Comcast HSI was $42/mo for 3Mb service which worked out to $14/Mb.

Today, I get 36Mb service for $63/mo which works out to $1.75/Mb.

Basically, the cost per Mb is 1/8 of what it was 10 years ago. Seems like a bargain to me.

Well put Mr. Anonymous

Would be interesting to see the OP's cost per Mb over time.

I think it is pretty obvious that any such reply from the OP would simply be that it hadn't gone down enough. Seriously, this thread was clearly labeled as a [Rant].

said by American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language :


rant (rànt) verb
ranted, ranting, rants verb, intransitive
To speak or declaim in a violent, loud, or vehement manner; rave.

verb, transitive
To utter with violence or extravagance: a dictator who ranted his vitriol onto a captive audience.

1.Violent, loud, or extravagant speech. See synonyms at bombast.
2.Chiefly British. Wild or uproarious merriment.

[Probably from obsolete Dutch ranten.]
- rant´er noun

There is nothing in the definition of "rant" that implies listening or any other kind of interaction; this thread should have consisted of only the OP's original [Rant], and have been left at that. OTOH, the OP is probably enjoying a bit of "Wild or uproarious merriment" from the number of posts that have been made in response to the [Rant].
