Between sports, the convenience of TiVo, and the relative cost-effectiveness of a bundle compared to just internet on Comcast, I'm not cutting any cord anytime soon. My viewing has shifted more and...

Most users, even fairly advanced users don't need more than about 50/20 today. Even a big family of heavy bandwidth users would probably be fine with 100/20. I'd get gig for $70 just for the heck of...

Well the equipment is going to be different on a non-HFC provider. That's just how it goes. Of course the 2gbps service is going to be expensive. You should be surprised it's only $299 considering...

Right. A really crappy internet connection.



I don't get what the critics are saying because everyone I talked to at work, myself included, like Season 1 a lot more.

I zoomed through Season 1 and the first couple of Season 2, and then it seemed to slow down a bit. I hope that Season 3 is more like Season 1. Can't wait for Season 3. OTOH, why bother reviewing the...

Holy crap! I didn't realize it was so huge. No wonder it took so long to download! It seemed like forever. I only have about 40mbps to my basement, so downloads are a little slow down there, although...

The requirement for Triple-Play was only in the early days of X1, when the supplies were limited, and they wanted to give it to the highest margin subs (even at $10-$20/mo incremental, phone has...

Depends on what you're doing. Most households are probably fine with 50mbps. If you're downloading huge games or video files the extra speed is nice.

True. Some areas haven't gotten the 25-50 upgrade yet, although they still have Blast! at 105, so it doesn't really make a difference.

75, 150, and 250 will probably the same as 50, 105, and 150 are today, respectively.

Whether 2gig will be the same price and under the same terms as Extreme 505 is today remains to be seen,...

Unless you have very deep pockets, you probably won't want it either. My guess is that it replaces the existing 505mbps service, which, IIRC, is around $300/mo on a 3-year contract. It will also...

It's going to be 10G MetroE based, similar to the current 505mbps offering, and fiber will only be run to customers who sign likely a 3-year contract at several hundred dollars per month and are...

Interesting. 2 subchannels, while obviously not the ideal situation of a single 1080i channel, isn't actually that bad, at least in theory.

Yeah, I'm not sure about the house thing, but on the rest of it, I think you're right. He is a very, very weird person, aside from being a sick serial killer, and does really weird things.
