    avoid comcast like the plague!!!
    it sucks.. especially in our area.. sucks big time...

    we dropped comast a couple or few years ago and switched to FiOs.. do not regret it..

    if you can get Cox where you are.. go with them.. but seriously.. avoid comcast...

    We have Verizon just for the internet...not FiOS though (I think). It's okay, but I find myself having to reset the internet a good 3-5 times a week. We're wanting to get cable so I'll stalk this thread

    that's the problem we had with comcast.. constantly going out for no reason, having to reset routers.. last straw is when i called them and they had no idea what was wraong or how to fix it.. MMMK.. by..

    I have Verizon FiOs just for internet and working from home and such is a breeze.. not one problem..

    well, we have of late only because we added 3 new devices and I don't think we have enough IPs open.. but that's our issue, not verizon.. but.. only once in 3-4 years has it gone down and that was due to a downed line from the weather...

    My grandparents have comcast and it's fucking shitty. It's always going out for no damn reason and their techs are useless.

    We haven't had Comcast in about 5 years but we never had a problem with them. We have Verizon now and it is fine. No issues. One of my fav things is their storage for DVR items is huge. I've got 59 1/2 hours on there right now and it is less than 90% full. Internet speed is good. I don't think we've ever been kicked off.
