I want Charter back or for the government to do what the uk did and make companies lease there lines out, so there is more competition.

You want to know something funny? We use to require this, but AT&T/Bell sued the government and got them to remove those requirements back in the 90s rolleyes.gif

Around here it's $12 for 100 Mbps down and 4 Mbps up, all unlimited. Also no pesky 6 strikes plan. thumb.gif

12 bucks a month here gets you two cans and a string.

Ha yes, but it won't make a difference from a regular one.

Lol, that about sums it up.

Luckily where I am there is Fios and TimeWarner so you at least have a choice. The Fios I have is 30up and 25down. Still costs to much though.
