Comcast still Sucks and RCN still Rocks!

Around a year ago, I realized that Comcast sucks but like a fool, I went back to it when my RCN Cable + Internet rates went up. All was cool till I returned from my global wanderings to find my Comcast cable + Internet out.

Calling Comcast the first chance I got, yesterday, I was told they would send a technician right out. On Sunday. Sunday, as in four days from when I called and an eternity for my WiFi addiction.

Disgruntled, I decided to call up RCN and see if I could connect to something more. Whoa! RCN Rocks even more than last year!

CSR Chris Coronas explained that not only will my cable + Internet bill drop to $70, almost last years’ $60 combo deal, if I wanted, I could even unbundl the two and just get broadband Internet for $20 a month.

Unbundled Internet service. From a cable company. Wow, I am in shock.

And they’ve been offering unbundled services (as well as bundled, of course) since January 15th of this year. Best yet, the RCN technician is coming out on Saturday, a full day before Comcast, and coming out for free.

Mmm… I like free. I like RCN even more!
