Re: Of course
said by 78036364:Amazon requires a separate internet connection to purchase. Best Buy has the entire series on blu-ray for $164.99. If you have a Best Buy in your area, then you have competition to your cable company.
instead of spending $2200 trying to stream Breaking Bad you could simply buy the blu-rays. Amazon has the whole series on sale now for $102.50
No need for all that The #1 reason not to trust the claims: Comcast said it. If Comcast/Cohen tell me the sky is blue, I'm going to look out the window and expect to see the sky is red.

Re: No need for all that Oh ... you mean like when Comcast claimed Time Warner Cable was a competitor when they wanted the NBC merger, but now is magically NOT a competitor when they want the TWC merger?

Dumbest thing I have heard in a long time Wow Comcast, you really want that merger don't you?
I know people stuck in semi-rural areas with no broadband. Only 1 WISP with coverage but they charge $99 a month for 1mbit with a $250 install fee and daily caps. 1 mile away is a wealthy subdivision with FIOS, 1.5 miles away is Comcast plant. The only cell providers with coverage are AT&T (3G), Verizon (LTE), and T-Mobile (EDGE).
They are literally stuck with shitty cellular internet with low caps. The Verizon CO they are served out of has no DSL, no ISDN, no nothing. It might as well have a Bell sign on the door still, its like 1982. Its rather sad as they are near the border (a matter of 1/2 of a mile) of a CO that will be getting a 100% FIOS build-out eventually, as soon as the county can finish pulling the strings of VZ.
They are with AT&T and get a 15gb bucket spread over 2 phones and a hotspot - overages are common and service quality is poor.
This mess is literally a stones throw from the nations capital.
For Comcast to say Wireless is a competitor, with the low insane caps and high overage cost, fluctuating latency and speeds is a joke that is an insult to rural citizens that are stuck with no other option.

Re: Dumbest thing I have heard in a long time What about latency? Weather? I doubt anyone gets 20Mbs.
And the cost for 15Mbs is over $100/month. Not cost effective.
Already evil. What about the areas that currently have no 4G? My sister lives in a city where there's no 4G coverage, lousy 3G coverage, and no DSL.
As a result, Comcast is the *only* broadband provider in her area; and packages start at $70/month.....for internet....the lowest package they offer.
Comcast couldn't be honest if they were lying about being honest.
