    yea they are giving some good deals with it. If you really want some speed pay the $10 more and get i think its 6mbit instead of the 4mbit. That would be nice to have. /me can't wait for the 10+mbit days

    I have been @ 4000/386 for over a month now - very speedy - except the new Comcast Home page - man have they ever messed that up! "Our ISP's Homepage" and it's one of the slowest loading pages I go to! Go figure!!!:speechless:

    They do have cable, the problem is, it is proprietary to the apartment complex... TVMAX... never heard of them before... seems weird to me too, they told my G/F no other cable companies are allowed in the complex, seems that would be a monopoly to me.... I hate it...
    and Verizon claims that area is a 1.5 DSL HA! either the lines are supremely dirty or we are WAAAAYY far away from the connection point....

    :(

    Usually if you live in an apartment complex, they have a contract with the local cable company so you're pretty much stuck with what is available.....

    yeah it does suck i remember when i lived there 500 download speed, i thought that was awesome, haha what a joke.....

    But you have to give it to BT, they have rolled out the system pretty quickly over the last 7 yrs or so.

    Little trick to reduce your comcast bill...i just passed the 6 mo mark & they upped me to the full $55/mo or whatever. Call in & tell them that you really like their service, but you just cant afford it and you have to switch to DSL. They will offer to extend the introductory rate another 6 months if you stick with their service =) Works with cable tv too, but they won't reduce it quite as much...my comcast bill dropped from ~$95/mo to ~$55/mo =D
