Is $60 too good to be true?


Right now my housemate and I pony up something like $150 clams for Cable + Internet from Comcast. That’s much beer money in this Majestic household, maybe too much. I’ve seen the ads and I just checked, we can get RCN if we want. My question to you is simple: Will RCN connect me to something more than Comcast?

With Comcast we usually get flickering premium channels, and only get the digital music channels when there is a lunar occultation of Jupiter. Is RCN any better? While I like RCN’s current $60 Cable + Phone + Internet deal (Nationals games!) is it even worth the hassle of changing? Have you done it & are you happy?

An uber Geek needs to know…

    I’ve been with RCN for almost two years now and I’ve never looked back. Comcast in DC is TERRIBLE! RCN’s customer service is far superior, and their cable guys come in on weekends.

    Wait, you say “their cable guys come in on weekends” – Oh yeah, that’s reason enough to switch. Have you used their phone service? This will be new to us, having gone 100% cellular years ago.

    Go to RCN. Go directly to RCN. Pass GO and collect savings. We switched early this year, got better reception, faster connection speeds, good landline quality, and much better customer service. Send comcast a message. Ditch em now.
