Good to know. Anybody in the general San Jose, California area have any major issues with the service? I should also note that my last experience with them had the service cut out at least once or twice a week (only on wireless (lynksis) for some reason) and that was in Spokane WA.

That probably had nothing at all to do with Comcast and everything to do with your wireless router. If other computers in your house were still connected to the internet, then Comcast was working just fine.

^^ This. If the connection between your modem and the internet is fine, it's not Comcast...it's your hardware.

However, don't you have click in your area? If so, we have a completely different backbone.


Yeah, I have click available in my area but I've never had a reason to move from Comcast, Also. What part of WA are you from?

What part of WA? Down here in the south sound I have 0 problems.

Ooh, what part of Colorado? I was in Thornton (Right outside of Denver, north about 15 minutes) For my summer vacation. We also went to Hanging Lake near Glenwood Springs, actually WENT to the springs, and went to Lake City for the 4th. Beautiful place, also; Denver is pretty neat and I like it better than Seattle.

I've been using Comcast for about 5-6 years now, no major problems, I consider it very reliable regardless of weather.

Way up in Blaine, WA.

You're actually clapping your thighs together with a force so powerful that you generate a sonic boom and the resulting electrostatic energy. Unfortunately, when you're silenced, you can't generate the audible force from your thunder thighs.

Man, I had a little get together last night. And I tried once, the interest wasn't too high. It was just me and aergis/thalia possibly and bldavis thinking about coming from Oregon.
