I totally love Cox cable. Today they announced that they increased internet speeds to 4000/512 for no extra cost. That's sweet. If I want to pay $15.00 more I can get 5000/768.

I pay $280 HK dollars (about $35.00 USD) a month for 6Mbit dedicated line and get Free DSL TV.

I will absolutley agree with absolute zero... comcast sucks. I also think Charter cable sucks for ISP but there pretty good for TV Lots of HD channels. I just switched to Verizon DSL and Direct TV about 2 weeks ago, and i HATE Direct TV but i LOVE DSL <<< a little slower but MUCH MORE RELIABLE!!!!!

Ever heard of shawcable? It's the worst. It always shuts down or messes up some how. Then you have to call a guy over to fix it, only to find out hes a week late. :mad: . Then you call back and they come. THey waste alot of time to make more money, and most of the time they can't fix it. It is frustrating sometimes. :eek:. Also it's not as fast as they claim...
