You're going to get me on my soap box again...

They are not presently enforcing their bandwidth caps, but they are trying it out in certain markets, as I understand it. If they try to do that to me, I will leave them on principal and never go back.

Oh, and if you thought Verizon's Actiontec modem/routers were bad, Comcast's SMC Networks DOCSIS 3 modems are even worse. Comcast loads their own dumbed-down firmware to it - you can't even turn the wireless radio off. I had to call them to force it into "bridge" mode in order to do so....

Oh, and while I'm at it, Verizon's menu system and DVR (particularly, the multiroom unit) blow Comcast away. Then again, Comcast does phone better (you can actually do 7-digit dialing with them). Funny that Verizon does TV better than Comcast, a cable company - and Comcast does phone better than Verizon, a phone company!

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
