Where do you live? If you are south of 466a then Spectrum is another option. You could also use cellular data via the cell phone companies. You would need to look into the cost and bandwidth.

Comcast has provided excellent service, including customer service. A strong vote for them!

Don't you need AT&T cellular (mobile phone) service in order to use AT&T's mobile wi-fi?

Nope, the mi-fi unit itself has it's own phone #, you just can't make or receive calls.

This is definitely off the subject but I figured people on this thread may think about streaming their TV service. We picked YouTubeTV and were happy with it until last night when several shows which my wife loves were zapped out because YouTube went down. The best part is there is no customer service number THAT I COULD FIND where someone answered. Baseball Playoffs were affected. Not good.

I'm not going to give up yet as we are pioneers. I did change to Comcast before I started streaming. Other than the problem mentioned its been very good.

Go in person to the Xfinity service center just off Rolling Acres Road at US441. I know it's a PITA but you will only have to do it once. They will get you set up correctly. We had issues moving across country and their phone support is more than worthless. They were more interested in selling than getting my service corrected. The folks in the store made some phone calls and everything has been perfect since.

I just lost the Comcast internet service again for about 30 minutes this morning, but I did not lose their cable TV service. Something to think about when you switch to streaming TV. I don't know why this happens several times a week because both Comcast services come to my house through the same black coax cable.

I just switched back to Comcast for TV. I have had their internet for years as it is the most reliable and fastest. If you are thinking about Comcast and have questions I met the area rep Ben who lives very close to The Villages and he is most helpful in explaining all service plans. He also helped me with an issue and resolved it quickly.
352-4607391 is his work number and he loves helping

I have been having trouble w/Comcast all summer. I put my service on the seasonal plan in April, just like the past 5 years. Somehow they didn't put me on seasonal, but canceled my account. So frustrating a summer of so many calls with still no results. Today I will call Ben.
