Comcast?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Well I have Att High Speed Internet in my home. At this location att can only provide the lowest speeds. I get 650 download and 340 upload. This really sucks for when downloading stuff. I think I am going to swith to comcast because they can give me up to 12mb download and 368 upload. The promotion says Internet and TV for 59.95 with one year term. This promotion saysays 12mb downloads and 1mb uploads. Would it be 1mb upload or 368? Also how much would my bill come out to be with taxes and everything included. I live in the city of chicago. Also there is a lot going on with comcast and the fcc. Does comcast monitor what you download or only if you download in large amounts?

Becareful with Comcast deals.
It's a certain price for the first year, or first few months, then WHAM. They hit you with the real prices.

There has been alot of controversy over Comcast and it's Torrent Throttling. I don't know if it's something of a reality, you might want to look into it.

Have you ever tried giving ATT a hard time about your speeds?
I have the fastest service they got and get 6k after enough complaining.
Before complaints I was getting the slowest speed for the Elite package.
Now Im maxed for what dsl has to offer.

DSL is distance reliant. If your too far away from the nearest AT&T building than there is only one speed they can guarantee. Comcast will be good, but keep in mind they will rape you once the good deal is over. I would suggest trying to talk one of their new all inclusive salesman. They have salesman that do everything for you, so they are your contact forever, you never have to call one of their terrible CS reps. I have talked to one at Best Buy before but in general I don;t know how you get hooked up with one of those guys. But they would be more inclined to give you good service for their commissions.

ALL ISP's "monitor" what you download to a certain extent.. Most of them cap torrent download and newsgroup download speeds. Most of it can be bypassed if you do enough research. Also, Comcast is said to have a 200GB download limit cap per month.

For any "elite", "extreme" or "turbo" internet plan expect to pay around $50-$60 a month just for the internet service itself.

I am in the process of ordering comcast and I am going to be getting a double play for internet and tv. They are asking me how many tv will be connected to comcast. Will I need a receiver for every tv or can I just get one receiver and then get like a splitter to divide the signal to multiple tvs?

You will have digital cable on the tv that has the box. If you say plug another tv to a wall jack, you will get their extended analog cable.

I go with ATT dsl. We have the medium package I think, supposed to be 1.5mb downloads. My wireless router sucks so the fastest I can ever get is 150kbps. Even on the comp that is wired the fastest speed I ever got was about 250kbps. One thing though is ATT NEVER says anything about torrents. I've downloaded hundreds of gigs from torrents between the 2 comps in the house and they've never said anything. I'd like to go with Comcast for some faster speeds but they're not nearly as torrent friendly. I don't know what they can actually do about it but I know they monitor you and will send letters. If you want the faster speed go with Comcast it will probably be like 75 or so a month for that first year. After that they will jack up the price though but you can probably talk them in to a better deal if you're persistant. Like I said though Comcast at least sends letters (maybe e-mail) about frequent torrenting so that might be an issue for you.

how about if you go into a site like watch-movies.net? Do they monitor what you do in that website? Also I have a tv tuner connected to my computer. It receives digital channels. Can I use this to get cable on my computer?
