Adelphia R.I.P.

It is with great pleasure that I report the demise of the Adelphia. Time Warner and Comcast are pecking through the carcass of the bankrupt cable company. Sometime in the next year, assuming FCC and DOJ approval, I'll become a Comcast customer for cable modem service. I'm not sure if that's a good or bad thing...

Yeah, my sentiments, exactly. "Asshats" is an understatement as to category, however.

Better Comcast than Time-Warner.

Must be a regional thing, McGehee. Time-Warner is The Bomb in my area. I love 'em.

If my experience with Comcast cable is any indicator, I'd start looking into dsl or (shudder) dialup if I were you. I no longer own a tv because the reception is so lousy without cable, my apartment building won't let me have a dish, and I ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY REFUSE to do business with Comcast (sorry about the shouting; this subject does that to me).

I have digital cable, HDTV, DVR, and broadband all through Comcast in Denver, and I'm 97.43% satisfied after about 18 months of service.

A regional thing, I agree. I've been on Comcast in two areas, one great the other sucks.

no complaints about Comcast besides seeing prices go up and up but that's what happens when you have no choice in cable providers. the one thing they are working on is inserting commercials into DVR'd content... don't like that at all since one reason you use the DVR is to avoid commercials.

John S.:

Let's see. Comcast cable modem cost twice what a Verizon DSL costs, but at 4 mbps it's 4 times faster. And over 2 years my connection has been 99.999% reliable. I wouldn't use Verizon and reliable in the same sentence.

For what it's worth, Comcast's digital cable and cable internet have been pretty good for me in Richmond, VA.

I have been an Adelphia customer for ten years in Morgantown, WV, and I have never had a problem with them.

Maybe I don't know how bad they are because I have never dealt with anyone else, but I just don;t know.

What did Adelphia do that made you all hate them (other than Rigas being a damned crook)?

I've been a Comcast cable user for over five years. It's been a good service.

I'm also a digital cable with HDTV service. Good services... pricey but worth it, to me.

Too bad for Adelphia and the family that controlled it.

They were fabulously rich but apparently thought of Adelphia as personal property because the owned so much of it for so long.

I just realized I said "what are are you" I meant "what area are you?"
