Edit: I recently purchased a $20 used cable modem from Amazon to forgo the $5 monthly charge that comcast makes you pay to rent their pieces of shits. Pays big time in the long run.

smart guy and thats a hell of a deal for 12mbp. I was paying $50 for time warner getting 15mbp that is the max package they will give you. I hate the fact that we are one of the most technologically advanced countries yet we are ranked like 20th in the world as far as average isp speed.

Yeah dude, ISP's overprice their bandwidth big time. When I joined Comcast, the customer rep tried to up sell me to the highest package, including the trio of phone/internet/tv. With my frugal nature, I said I wanted the lowest possible. haha. I have been getting the 6 month deals every since I started. I do miss ESPN cuz I don't get it with my basic TV. I don't understand why our Internet speed would be ranked so low either. What's the country with the highest speed?
