Default Comcast vs CenturyLink

Neither of these company's customer service are worth a hoot. Any other choices? We only need internet.

I don’t agree with that statement. I’ve had nothing but excellent customer service with Comcast. From the tech’s, to their phone support, and the convenience of the new store location in Lady Lake.

I agree. I have not had any service problems with Comcast. I think they offer a high speed (150 mbps) internet service, which include about 10 basic cable channels for about $50 per month.

I know you stated about not wanting century link / comcast .. and I agreed until about 10 mos. ago when I changed over to centurylink's price for life.. I now get internet only 80mbps for $45 a month.. and have had no problems and really like the fact that every year I don't have to renegotiate prices.. I live at the north end near Lopez

I agree.

I have been a Comcast customer for 10 years and whenever I had a problem, which is seldom, they have fixed it immediately. Never lost TV during last year's hurricane. I do have an issue when they raise my rates, so I have to use my negotiating skills. Always works out. I also have their high speed internet and it is great.

I have an AT&T wireless mi-fi. Fits in my pocket and works anywhere in the country. It is rechargeable, and smaller than a pack of smokes. Verizon has a similar unit.

I haven't moved into my new house yet and I already despise Comcast.

A couple of weeks ago I set up all my new utilities to start on Oct. 30 (the day we close). The next day I find out that when they set up my new account they turned off the seller's existing service and they had to spend hours on the phone getting it straightened out.

A week later I get a bill in email. I'm wondering why I got a bill since my service won't be starting up for weeks, so I call and find out that when they turned the seller's service back on they turned it on in MY NAME. They say in order to fix things they have to delete my account and create a new one. They assure me that nothing they are doing is going to impact the seller's existing service.

The next day I find out that ... you guessed it ... they did, in fact, turn off the seller's service again.

I shudder to think what is going to happen when I get in the house and try to set up my router and Tivos.
