I do, and the speed is 30Mbit/2Mbit. This is the DOCSIS3 tier at $70/month. It used to be $80/month... but I need the speed so I suck it up and pay. 10M/1M costs $42/month. Modem lease included, but if you use your own modem they don't reduce the price. So I don't. I use theirs.
Their network seems pretty reliable (probably due to the low population density here) but the only problem is that they have caps, which are 100GB per month on the 30M tier... 60GB per month on the 10M tier. They are the only game in town apart from Embarq DSL (5M down here) so they get away with it.
On the flip side, TV doesn't seem to cost too much.... $65.95 for expanded basic which includes everything except a few of what I refer to as "boutique" channels (Fox sports, Disney XD, MTV/VH1 extra channels, Nickelodeon extra channels etc). Equipment wise the first digital box is free (standard def) and I own two of my CableCARDs (S-Cards) so I pay no rental on them. The third CableCARD (M-Card) is for my new Ceton InfiniTV 4 quad tuner MOCUR and costs $3/month.
Customer service wise? They could do better on the phone support because they only have people available by phone from 8AM to 6:30PM. After that you get an answering service which is close to useless. All they ever seem to do is to tell me to unplug and replug the power to the equipment. But if you have a serious problem such as no service at all (tree fell on wire etc) they can dispatch an oncall tech... But I've had problems where I was able to talk to escalation support and they were very supportive and helpful and sent techs to my house to diagnose and fix issues.
They're a family owned cable company, first in the nation actually. John Walson was the guy who put an antenna up on a mountain in Pennsylvania and ran a cable to his appliance store and connected people along the way. Now his sons and daughter own it.
I've read another one your old post i think it was canadian ota site, talkin about antenna design someone mention that wade parabolic goes for 3 grand, you replied for that price it oughta bring you a beer and cigarette when you want one. lol
I don't think that was me.
