A lot of reasons why I'm ridding myself of these bullies and fascists.


My complex only allows Comcast or Dish.

dish network doesn't have an internet option for me, only tv.
Directv does their internet through ATT so I don't think I can use it, I wouldn't know yet bc my leasing office never answers the phone.

Is there any other way to get wireless internet??? I can't use sprint wifi or any of that because it's 4g and I need to be able to use it on an xbox.

Anyone else found a way around this???

In some areas 3rd party cable companies resell comcast service, actually cheaper. Like RCN.
Is 4G to slow? I was going to recommend something like clear

I got rid of comcast and went with Direct TV.  For internet and phone I went to Verizon FIOS which is a million times better.  Then I moved and Direct TV wanted me to pay $300 to move so I told them I'd rather pay the $350 disconnect fee than pay to have my services moved. 

Back with Time Warner Cable.

They are all fckn crooks at the end of the day.  Nothing is ever what they promise.

My sister said something about NET Zero.  Not sure how many gigs you get.

Is there AT&T u verse in your area?

I hate TWC and their hidden fees so I'm not renewing my contract. Everyone in my complex uses u verse so I wonder if they have decent prices.

I think the Mafia runs Comcast . I left that lying service years ago .
I currently enjoy WOW . Check with your apartment manager for a damage waver . Many apartments get a kick back from Comcast . Good luck .

I'll look into rcn, thanks

We called clear and they're through sprint, which is our cell provider but they said it wouldn't work on gaming. :(. Also, I don't think it's unlimited?

Kfoxx, they are all crooks...and they know you have so few options. I'll also check out netzero.

Deva, directv offers internet through AT&T DSL bc they don't offer uverse here. I still don't know if AT&T would be allowed in here either way. My first choice is to get directv and let them figure out how to install my inet without the apt knowing...maybe I'll get lucky.

Never heard of wow, I'll see about that. A damage waiver for what? The dish? If so there's a 150 deposit grr. Comcast definitely gets kick backs, it's insane. They don't care about complaints because they know we are stuck in these apts.

Lmao no, do you?! Cuz I need a real hook up.

When I get home I'm gonna look into everything suggested. My goal is to have this xfinity equipment out of here by tomorrow morning since my last bill posts Monday. They're not getting me for another month.
