  • Dear Ed: " Customers increased by 28.1% to 294K with a net add of 287K High-Speed Internet customers " That doesn't look right.

  • Just an example, but personal.
    Called up Comcast to give them the old Once A Year "the rates too high I'm gonna switch" pitch so they give me the $99.00 Bundle" and they wouldn't budge. Would receive a $20 boost to $119 plus tax, title and tires. So I switched to Verizon package at total of $140, and have 2X times the internet speed, More Channels and same VOIP with messages, forwarding, etc on the same old home number.
    More techie's here are also switching.
    I find the "increase" just a bit fishy.
    Just my experience in the market place, but that's what happened to me and I'm happy I switched.
