Exactly. I pay for 16Mbps of unlimited service as advertised. Because Comcast advertises this then they should be able to provide the same level of service to everyone. If they cannot provide the bandwidth I pay for and throttle me then I should get a refund for however much they throttle back my service.

Lucky you. We pay $65 a month for 4Mbps from Comcast. Comcast loves to rape their customers when they are the only competition in town. Comcast is so damn cheap, they have yet to dig a new trench to put our line in. Currently it is sitting on the forest floor. Whats worse, they used the coax that is meant for INDOOR use (IE it is not as weather resistant).

The reason comcast is doing this is beacuse they are too cheap to upgrade their bandwidth on the lines and substations.

Cheap SOB's...

Might as well silently steal it for personal use then.

I would, but Lee, NH is really rural. I have 3 neighbors around me. One has 150 acres of land and his house is a good 3 acres away. The other two have houses 1-2 acres away. So the only wireless signals I can pick up are from my router.

Acre has units of area. You can't use it to explain distance to us.
