    don't say that is the only internet provider you can get
    I live way out in bfe there is no internet out here except what I provide via satellite same for my BOL it may not be the fastest but I still got it.
    Same way out here. Only option is dial up or satellite. The satellite sucks big time and so does the service from huges net. It's also overpriced. I use a cell phone for most of my internet now.

    Didn't say they were the only provider. Said they were the only provider with any speed. Slow internet is just like no internet.

    I sort of hate Comcast too because they have fairly frequent outages. I found that calling them and complaining a lot seems to help. I get upgraded to the newest hardware at least once a year, and my connect speeds are good for a residential account.

    I just checked and am getting 120 mbps down and almost 15 up.

    Tip: most big companies (like Comcast) have a customer retention group, though they may call it something else. Always say that you want to discontinue your service, then ask if they have such a group. The people in these retention groups are authorized to do pretty much anything to keep you as a customer. I have gotten better equipment, free plan upgrades, free months, and lower rates by using this little trick. It's worth trying.

    We have directv for television and a dedicated dsl line with 10mbps from the local phone company. The dsl line costs me $29.95 a month. Check with your local phone company and see if you can do the same.

    We use an antenna for TV, and our land line phone company provided us with a wi fi modem that is high speed. To keep the bill low we have local calls only, no long distance, caller ID, none of that.
    It is good on line service, just as quick as here at work.

    When I was 40 miles west of Chicago, city of 50,000, Comcast was THE only provider and had their way (expletive removed) with the citizens (and me). When I moved, I dropped off the modem and got the receipt and filed it (thank God). Three months later, I get a forwarded bill for $200 for the modem. The claim I didn't return it. It took me nearly a half hour of waiting on the phone before I could talk to someone. "Just send us a copy of the receipt. So I sent them a copy of the receipt and figured it was done. NOPE, went thru it two more times. Comcast can go to ....

The link took me to a page that repeatedly told me that an error had occurred, and apologized for the inconvenience. So now, I have to find a guide on troubleshooting their troubleshooting guide. RIDICULOUS!!!!

    Chattanooga EPB added fiber optic as an option a few years ago and I thought "finally some competition". Sadly, nope, they just priced comparably to Comcast, but because of that Comcast is considerably more responsive to keeping our business.

    Allow me to clarify. Of any speed in this context means only provider of Internet with speed that's worth having. Sorry to confuse YOU.
