    Non-prep related rant

    I detest Comcast. Their products, their service, their customer interaction. All of it is terrible. Unfortunately, due to my location, they are my ONLY option for Internet of any speed. My connection is spotty at best. The speed varies greatly. I actually was on their site to do some troubleshooting, and followed a link to a troubleshooting guide. 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!!!!

    The worst is when internet providers expect you to look up solutions to your connection problem on their website.

    If I can't connect to the net then HOW THE #*$% am I supposed to see their #$%^ing WEBSITE?

    Hate is not a strong enough word for how I feel about Comcast, their technical support and customer service. I will not bore you with the details, it took 8 months 6 death certificates and numerous visits to their office to get them to cancel the account and take their boxes back. They were rude, insensitive and downright nasty to me.

    We just cancelled Dish at home... we now have no paid TV service.. we have netflix and I have a TV antenna I need to connect

    We had an comcast outage (internet and voice) at work last week.. I called (on my cell phone) and explained what was going on..and yep there was an area wide outage... I ask to have all calls forwarded to my cell phone.. the girl said..you can do that online... I said "Do you remember why I am calling?"..... she did a forward for me....

    Hmmmm.... I signed up with Comcast earlier this year. If you thought they are bad, you have no idea what having a bundled service with Dish and Windfart (stream) was like. A blazing internet speed of 1.5, paying for service I did not want (copper line phone, $15 a month could not call out beyond a 15 mile radius if I did try to use the phone), Dish was okay except for losing signal during storms. Right now I save $30 a month over what I was paying, but it jumps up $30 in year 2 of the contract.

    Comcast and NBC are the same company.

    NBC.......the TV network that brought us MSNBC and Brian Williams.

    All bought and paid for by the Democrats.

    I've heard horror stories. I don't have comcast but I do have issues of my own. The problem seems to be no competition. Most of these companies are the only choice people have so they can be super shitty. It's them or nothing.
    First you have to give up. First you have to know, not fear, know that someday you're going to die.

    Ahhh Modern conveniences. Gotta love it. I threaten to yank out Comcast on a weekly basis it seems. But, football season is coming.

    You have to use a friend's computer who has a "real" internet provider.
