I think the Dish is your best bet. I seriously think that Comcast is taking on way more customers than their main equipemnt can handle. As I said in my previous post the pixels constantly break apart on 1/2 my channels and did I mention snow and white dotted lines? Plus, we have their internet which is supposed to be 6 for speed. Every test we've run through Speakeasy whicjh is where they tell you to test your speed, we're at a 1-2. When they first put the speed at 6 we had it, then a month later and a m illion more customers we dropped way down on speed. Once in a while we get lucky and get a 3. So, they said we needed a new router. Ours is up to date and a good one. But still the same. The last call I made about our cable, she said we weren't getting a good signal. GEE YA THINK!!! Being that I do know electronics I know they've bitten off more than they can chew. Just like AT&t with their cell phones. Way too many customers per towers. Hence, many dropped calls. Comcast needs some real good competition or alot of us to go to the Dish and be happy and not paying the ridiculous prices for crappy picture quality, and don't get me started on the service guys that come out. Once again another company gets greedy and get a bunch of pidgeons, the consumers, to pay the price and they just keep collecting the money and telling stories about why the picutures are so bad. They actually told me to go out and buy a HD TV and all my problems would go away. Well a few of my neighbors and family have HD TV and n othing changed. They just have a large credit card bill now. Besides, considering analog makes up 1/2 their tv stations, no HD can help that. They're good at blowing smoke. One rep told me she has the Dish and loves it because she can't afford Comcast and she works for them. Hope that call was monitored.Let me know how your dish works out.
