comcast just as bad

I get just as much mail from Comcast for xfinity. Which is odd b/c I am a business class customer. I can't get xfinity while I'm on contract. You'd think they might know this and not waste money marketing to me.

Does it come to you in Spanish, like mine?

AT&T is also sending door-to-door salesmen through my neighborhood. One of them came by a couple of weeks ago and told me two big lies in less than a minute -- that AT&T no longer has a cap, and that I now have fiber to the home rather than just the node. Comcast at least hasn't done that.

I get the same amount from both Verizon and Comcast.

a Verizon salesperson even threw a pizza party in my apartment complex's laundry room to drum up new business, so I took his free pizza and then informed him I was already a Verizon customer

I agreed to a 250gig cap on my business connection but if I go into the control panel and check usage it says I'm on unlimited.

Also as far as lying about FTTH vs FTTN. You are incorrect about NOT having FTTH. Some areas in fact DO have FTTH and several are over built with the copper stripped out.

Saved mine too, just for entertainment. Guess I'm not the only one. I just counted 63 pieces of absolute junk mail from Comcast for 2012 wanting me to sign up for Internet service alone. Funny thing is that I already have Internet service from them.

Can I turn these in for credit on my bill?

But it is a lie if they claim it is available where it isn't available. In my last neighborhood some U-verse is FTTN, some is CO; but none is FTTH.

I guess, technically, June, 2011 is a couple of years ago:

Depends on where you are. DSL can be quite reliable; it certainly has been for a number of my friends, and relatives, as well as myself.
