Re: Comcast Tier Names Changing

or just call them by the appropriate megabits

Comcast? Don't you mean Xfinity?



As noted previously, the speed currently doesn't necessarily migrate from system to system. 'Xfinity 15' may work for you and I, but elsewhere it may be 'Xfinity 12' or 'Xfinity 8' or......

At least they are getting conformance in verbiage for the tiers. They have established the hierarchy regardless of speeds, whether they eventually achieve parity across the country with the speeds remains to be seen.

Economy Plus remains the same, what about just plain Economy?

It doesn't work for 'she and I'; but it does work for 'her and me'!

I'm sorry but that went right over my head, or thru it without even slowing down......

I was going by JigglyWiggly See Profile's location of Pleasanton CA, that probably has the same available tiers I do on the other side of the Altamont Pass.

Dang. The humor only works if "thou hadst" paid attention in school ...

"She", "I": Subjective pronouns; actors.
"Her", "me": Objective pronouns; recipients of actions.

"She and I did"..."it was done to her and me".

Unlike first and third person personal pronouns (she/her, I/me), the second person personal pronoun (you) is not case-sensitive now. In older times it was (thou/thee: "Thou didst", "it was done to thee").

Re: Comcast Tier Names Changing

I agree. I have the $62.95 a month tier, but have no idea what speed I'm supposed to have. I bet if I call Comcast and ask twice, I'll get two different answers.

I also have no idea how the promo price of $29.95 a month jumps to 62.95 a month after 6 months. I knew it would go up, but doubling the price is ridiculous.

Anyhow, it isn't any better than my old 1.5MB Earthlink DSL that was $29.95. Netflix still stalls and re-buffers, which is why I switched to Comcast. Now I pay more for the same problem.

I say, fancy new name = fancy new price.

Oh, OK. I was being too literal and vaporlocked on 'Xfinity 15'.

In hindsight (and with your prodding), I now realize I should have used 'me and you'.........

You're suppose to get at least 12-15mbps download speed. You're on the Performance tier.

I was getting 2.70mbps with att, and Netflix would play in HD, got the switched to CC and got the Performance tier and I can watch Netflix and ESPN3 on Xbox Live in HD with no problems, if I want I can watch a Youtube video in HD at the same time.
