Re: Another one bites the dust

Yes, we do or at least did have a choice between Comcast and AP&T. Comcast was here first as far as I know.

According to one article the decision to build the system was made 10 years ago because Alameda was unhappy with both TCI and AT&T Broadband. So the Alameda city leaders were right that AT&T didn't know how to run a cable company in 1998 but wrong with their long term prediction of the market.

Give Comcast a try sashwa, your price will likely rise to $42.95, but you should get 12/2 for that (if the plant is up to current standards)
