Comcast - better than TWC or worse?

I had a rather nightmarish experience moving from one house to the other in the past few weeks thanks to our local cable company. I'm just wondering if anyone else has had past experience with Comcast perhaps in a different market that could give some insight as to whether we've moved up, down, or lateral in terms of service from the cable co.

Sorry to hear that. I'm not at all familiar with Comcast or TWC. Cable providers should be done by a local company if you ask me. Kind of like an ISP should be a local company. I think these services can at times require a more personal touch. Compared to what seems to happen when that 'support' is coming from thousands of miles away.

I get my cable service from some Blanchard cable company. Tech support is handled out of Canada. As long as it's working, it's great.

I do not use either. I'm not a big fan of cable. I use DishNetwork and DSL. But when I hear the word "comcast", I think back to the days that Glenn Beck was on KEEL radio. He used to rant about comcast all the time. It was pretty funny.

Some of his quotes include:
"It is the vehicle for the anti-Christ."
"Comcast sucks, my Lord, Comcast sucks...."

Well... loving the cable company is like loving the power company or the water company; doesn't happen too often... LOL, no love for ISP's either for that matter. Reminds me of a song by Todd Rundgren called "I hate my frickin ISP".

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&l...+todd+rundgren

The reason that I signed up
Is the reason that I hate it
I know she's made her mind up
I just don't know how she's made it
And my dial-up screen has locked me
Into a touch tone tune monotony
Because some snot-nosed pube has blocked me out
And I wait
And I wait
And I hate my frickin ISP
He ain't got go bandwidth left for me
And I'll never get back
Never get back the time that I waste
That's what I hate
My job's so hard to swallow
But it's got me by the collar
In some Motel 6 squalor
Where every local call's a dollar
I got no time left to jack off
I got a deadline that won't back off
I'm about to chew my own leg off
Cause it's so late
And I'm late
And I hate my frickin ISP
I get bumped for inactivity
And I'll never get back
Never get back the time that I waste
That's what I hate
It rained CD roms that gave me
Twenty hours free
I let my service provider
Make a junky outta me
And then he cut me off
From my online community
And now I hate, I hate it
I hate I hate I hate I hate
I hate my frickin ISP
His domain name lookup takes eternity
etc...
Na na na na na
