    Comcast vs metronet

    I just switched our home network over to metronet fiber. My pings to a google server went from 60-500+ms to 8-9ms consistently.

    incredible.

    if you have the choice... itís not really a choice. I have 1gbps for $70/mo

    Love them as if you'll lose them.

    Comcast SUX!!!!!!! There, I feel better now.
    "If you are able, save for them a place inside of you and save one backward glance when you are leaving for the places they can no longer go.
    Be not ashamed to say you loved them, though you may or may not have always. Take what they have taught you with their dying and keep it with your own.
    And in that time when men decide and feel safe to call the war insane, take one moment to embrace those gentle heroes you left behind."

    Must be nice.

    My ping time is anywhere from 40 ms when things are working well (25 Mbps) to 500 ms when they aren't (sub-1Mbps). My only other choice is Spectrum, who I have already fired once.

    Waiting patiently for Endeavor to run fiber out this way.

    Had Metronet fiber optic internet and TV at the old house. Loved the speed of the internet. The tv... not so much. They consistently changed the channel selection so all the outdoor channels I liked were no longer in our package. I could add them back for an additional fee along with 47 other channels I would never watch. Their underground sub was nice enough to ask if he could drill a 6Ē hole in my driveway to see how deep the gas line was so they didnít hit it directional boring the conduits for the fiber optic. He though I was kidding when I told him ďSure. If you saw cut the entire section out and repour it.Ē The House was 2 years old. Instead they drilled through the sidewalk and filled it with sand. They did repair it with bag mixed concrete that was almost black. Same guys that hit numerous gas lines in fishers and got booted by the town council.

    Technically itís Xfinity... but regardless how you say it, spell it, write it down... it all spells sucks in the end. But seriously, who do you go with? Any company can choke down your internet at any given time, and what are you going to do.. piss and moan, why? Because itís a needed item and you canít just make your own internet now can we? Any company I have went through for internet sucks, you have to buy our router, you have to move your internet from 250 to 400... well I wasnít getting 250 let alone 125 so why should I get more when I wasnít getting what I was paying for anyway. Itís a consortium.

    They hit a FEW gas lines here in GW, too. But mainly they hit the telco lines. Like mine. AT&T practically followed behind them to repair all the stuff they nicked or cut. I believe when they hit mine, the TV still worked fine by the Internet didn't. It wasn't a complete tear, but nicked it just right so that one of the signals could come across and one didn't.
