Talking Well I finally told Cable to BLOW!!!!

Well yesterday I had enough of CUMCAST!!!! My internet service has been real sporatic at best and I constantly had to reset my modem. As far as my TV channels I got none as they never provisioned my cable box (still have yet to put the sat up in the new house). SO I call them up and ask what is up and they tell me I am not sapposed to have a cable box and now they are going to charge me for it!!!! I was pissed and the long of the short is I told them to stuff everything up their butts and disconnect me. Now I go to return all the stuff we had. The ladie is behind a HUGE glass wall like you see in the banks in NY I say to her "so you have that many happy customers"

I have DSL now and it is SO MUCH FASTER and actually WORKS!!! Not to mention it is about 15 bucks a month cheaper then Cumcast was (actually 33 if you did not get cable services)

Now if it was not raining I could set up my dish and be done with them for good!!!

Moral of the story..... GO DSL....CABLE SUCKS

I SECOND THAT!! Unfortunately DSL is not available in many of the more remote areas where cable is. BUT, If you have a choice, I would say, " Don't think twice: go DSL!" --- Jer

CABLE is like the DEMOCRATS
The only thing they know is to lie.
I just love the cable comercials that talk about how bad the dish is.
If the IDIOT would mount the dish like the directions say then their wouldn't be any problem.
I recently tried to get DSL but it isn't available YET.
I hate cable for the TV - the picture sucks and NO HDTV
As soon as I can get DSL the cable goes.
I do have good speed but it costs way too much.
