Super fast Internet for less $$$



This speed test was ran at the rush hour time of 7:00pm - Pacific. Earlier, I got 27777 from www.speakeasy.net/speedtest. I will run one later on tonight when the lines go quiet.

18 months ago we signed up for the Comcast triple play. (Internet, phone, cable TV) We had been with Comcast Internet for years but dropped our old phone and went VOIP. Well, as it turns out, 18 months is exactly the amount of time it takes to forget that you signed up for an introductory offer. This month, our $99/month offer went up to $150. OUCH!

I called tonight with the intention to fake quitting so that they would extend my offer. I did not even have to fake it. When I mentioned that our bill had gone up $50/month, the representative just said, "oh, we are running a September promotion." The promotion includes the DVR, which I was paying $15/month for and 3X faster Internet. (I was already fast at 6Mb/ps) Here is the funny part, the promotion was $5 less than I was paying before.

If you already have Comcast, give them a call. It might be worth it.

BTW, my Internet really is fast now.

With quartz watches, however, the replica watches sale only vibrates at a very minimal amount. This usually means that the rolex replica sale only loses about 10 seconds per month. Also, another reason the quartz is a more popular substitute for the other replica watches uk is that it doesn't need winding, which is a nuisance for some people, and the batteries need to be replaced every few years. When most people buy rolex replica, they don't realize how much goes into keeping them up-to-date and in good working condition. It's not like having a car, but you do have to take some steps to keep your replica watches timepieces running well. This is especially important if you bought a fine breitling replica like a Cartier Santos 100 or a Techno Marine — these are moderately priced watches, so to allow them to deteriorate is just plain silliness.
