Last week, RCN (formerly Starpower) installed my cable TV service to replace the awful service I was getting from Comcast. The Comcast signal was constantly dropping out on HD and digital channels. I was also losing audio and on demand services. Comcast never figured it out after almost a year of trying. Now, RCN, using the same set-top box and the same house wiring (obviously) is working fine.
Today, Verizon installed FIOS internet. The installers were very professional and did a fantastic job. I have a structured wiring box which they took advantage of – carefully placing the wires, router, power supply and all. It looks quite nice (from a geek’s perspective, of course).
Now it’s time to cancel Comcast and wait for FIOS TV!!
