Well, at least in my home.
I called Verizon on Friday and asked them about the phone, DSL, dish deal. The figures came in a shade above what I am paying to three separate companies. Hmmmm, let's see. Pay a few pennies more to be able to tell Comcast to get stuffed or ... oh... who am I kidding? There is no "or"!
By mid-October, Comcast will no longer be our ISP nor will they provide the antenna in the shape of a cable box on top of the PS2.
As for the phone line, who cares. I barely use it. I call my mum once a day on it - that's all. It's purely for emergencies if the electric goes out. I make 99.9999% of my calls using the mobile. Now that's a twist. I consider my house phone for the one for emgerncies and the mobile the one for everyday use.
I know Comcast could give a frog's fat water-tight backside over losing my business. But at least they won't have my cash.
