Pissed off.

I know I'm supposed to do the beer review tonight, but honestly I'm not in the mood to do it. I just got off the phone with Comcast about our new internet/cable service and they have my blood boiling.

We had Insight, but then Comcast bought them out. They have been telling everyone how great they are going to be when they finally take over for at least 5 months now. They've been sending us items telling us when it was going to happen and that the transition should be seamless. HA!

Today I get a mailer saying that the channels we have are changing, and so are the packages. I was confused so I called them to see how big of a change it was going to be. Long story short, in order to keep the channels I want to watch, my cable bill is going to be about $45 dollars more a month and I'm going to get a crap load of channels I don't want.

While trying to research this I had to switch my e-mail for our internet over to their account. That was less than exciting as it didn't work like they said it would. Nothing transfered properly. Comcast tech support said I had to call Insight. Insight said they had nothing to do with our area anymore and I had to work with Comcast. Two hours later and Clone learning interesting phrases like, "Cum gurgling gutter slut" along with various other curses because I was hung up on twice by Comcast, we finally came to a work around that didn't fix the problem, but masked it.

Now at this point I'm just really not in the mood to gently drink a beer and have a review. No, now I'm in the mood to go drink some really potent and cheap liquor... if you know what I mean.

I promise the review will be done tomorrow baring any further complications.

Oh, and for the record Comcast Sucks!

Comcast doesn't suck, they are just plain evil.

I knew they had you fooled when you believed that nothing could do wrong.

Do you have an option for Verizon Fios? You might look into it see if they do internet and tv in your area. Not sure how they are for switching but I've been told by someone who switched over that it's awesome... one opinion with no clue as to what it might cost for the channels you want... but there it is. *grin*

We have Dishnet and I have no complaints. We might lose our signal during a really bad thunderstorm, but that's when our movie collection comes in handy.

Comcast was the BANE OF MY EXISTANCE for about 7 months. It actually got to the point a month ago where i told them to piss off and shut off my service. I am moving in a month, i have netflix, and i don't need the hassle or the distraction during finals.

If you can, switch to a dish and dsl, i know dish and direct tv are both paired with a respective dsl company. Save yourself a whole lot of hassle.
