    Evil comcast has bought my cable company. They slowing the service down [​IMG] from 10meg down 1 meg up to 7 meg down 500k up. Good news is Verizon has just run Fios on the street. 20 meg down 2 meg up unlimited longdistance phone and 200 channels of Tv. So does any one have the FiOS service and do you like it?

    I don't know about their internet service, but here in the Bay Area, my Verizon *wireless* is tops in my book. I've tried other cell companies and they all suck at connection, customer service, and other areas where Verizon shines...

    I know this is about internet access, but I wanted to share my view on the company as a whole...

    They have 150meg down 20 meg up for $152. but I think that is a little over kill. the service i listed in my first post is 99.00 a month with tv and phone.

    Ya... I have a 10 to 1 interweb conn, cable with hbo/showtime/cinemax combo from COMCAST.

    I pay 56bucks a month for the whole thing!

    Now I will admit their customer service is complete utter donkey ball sweat... but, I can't beat this deal at all... and my ISP doesn't go down hardly ever.

    comcast says it has some kind of speed boast It increases speed for the first part of the download then it slows down Looks like an advertising gimmick so they can boast about higher speeds in their advertising.

    I'm guessing no one here has it.
