Comcast uses a few shady ads that average joes might believe.
1) More HD content (than anyone). They may have more On Demand choices but they have less channels
2) They use Fiber. Really? no kidding. They difference between Fios and Comcast is HUGE. They really have no right even mentioning Fiber Optic in their ads. The last mile makes all the difference.
3) They have faster internet than the Telcos- Cable internet is faster than DSL which Verizon provides in my market. Verizon also has Fios internet and there is no doubt that Fios is much much faster.
The problem is Comcast is losing customers at a very fast rate. When I canceled Comcast to switch to Fios they told me that Comcast uses Fiber. I then told the lady all about Fiber and why Comcast can't match them. Pricing was another point and I told her that for $5 more a month I get internet 3 times faster, better picture quality, and come summer a much larger amount of HD channels.
I give the girl credit, she kept coming up with reasons to stay. she was good. The truth hurts sometimes I guess.
Maybe Comcast should get their On Demand fixed (never worked), charge me the right amount (almost every month for the past year it was wrong), provide NFL network free, and not try to force me into a contract to keep me (Their call reminded me of the Fios line installed 6 weeks prior on my street).
The best part is I can see the huge skyscraper they are building here in Philly. Comcast country my ass.
