I know allot of you probably aren't from the USA/PA/Pittsburgh Area. but i have kinda the same problem as Raw. i've have Cable INTERNET from Comcast (Comcrap) for a little over a year. I have had a tech to my house 28 times since i got it 9 Modem replacements and one Full house Cable installment (Free: Incompetent Cable installer). if i have One more Problem in 2 months i'm looking to have a different High Speed ISP. does anyone know of any that are under 50 a Month, and has a good speed/uptime? if i try Dial-up that "Tin cans and a string" wouldn't be far from the truth. I would connect at on a GREAT Day 1400 Baud Rate.
Edit: I forgot to mention been with out Internet access since Nov 29th
This is a Post i made on another site which i'll edit of the improper wording:
-Start- Posted on December 8th
COLOR ME RED!!!
Comcast can BURN IN HELL I get home yesterday thinking SWEET I can get on-line and Play EQ once again!! Well Comcast had a different thought process.
First off they say Monday that they’ll be there. Tuesday about 2:30PM they finally show up my mom lets the guy in. hes there working about an hour tells my mom hes going out to his truck to see something. my mom just waits there for him the Guy NEVER came back!!!
SO I call up Comcast after about 45 Minutes being on hold for someone to pick up I start (Insert Bad Word Here) the (Insert Bad Word Here) (Insert Bad Word Here) HUNG UP on me!!!! I call back ½ hour later. I’m finally talking with someone. He said there is no record of me calling for the past week! I told him I called at least 15 times in the past week. They say I’m sorry Ma’am its not in our records (OMG WAS I PISSED!!!!(If Pissed is a bad word on this Forum Sorry)) (mind you he did confirm my name, which as far as I know JOHN is only a guys name!) I told him I wanted to talk with his supervisor he tried telling me he didn’t have a supervisor! At this point I’m soooooo furious! I hang up and call back, I get some female I couldn’t (Insert Bad Word Here) understand. I say I want to speak with a supervisor RIGHT NOW! 20 Mins later I’m finally talking with a supervisor I explain to the guy what has been going on. he looks at my records and finds the last three people I talked too. This guy was so nice he transferred me back to the CS who was telling me he had no supervisor, and no records of my calls. (which all of a sudden appeared WOW Magic) While the supervisor was on the phone the CS started yelling at me, the supervisor then interrupted the Call and started yelling at the CS then we disconnected from the CS. (the one who hung up on me was no longer there so nothing was done with her) The supervisor then helped me he told me that it was on record that the tech who was at my house called in to say the whole house needed rewiring and an amplifier added to my lines. But the guy didn’t have the Equipment in the Van to do the job so he left. Well I asked the guy how long till this is able to be done. he looks and says Monday again! I kept my cool and asked if there was any way to get it done sooner. he said only way was if someone calls to cancel. B4 we hung up the guy said that he will keep checking to see if someone cancels and call to confirm with me.
Later last night about 10:30 the guy calls me back, said there has been a cancellation for Late tonight. (Wednesday) but since the Job will not be a 15 minute thing it would have to carry over to first thing the Tech does on Thursday.
Just got off Phone with my mom and shes still waiting for the Tech to arrive. 3:05 PM Now
Only good thing is unlike Raw i'm getting 2 Months Free credit.
P.S. i have a bad habit of Killing Post donno why i just do.
