This pains me so much. But soon I'll be moving, and with that, comes a new ISP.
I currently have RCN, and I'm relishing every last second I have. I pay $53/mo for 110 Down / 15 Up, no service fees, no mandatory equipment rentals, no rate increases, nothing. Same price, always. Consistent service. No bandwidth caps. Reliable internet. I'm aware that all of this is about to change.
The two companies servicing my new location are Verizon and Comcast. Comcast being the more affordable (on the surface) of the two.
I need opinions, I need stories, I need to know how to put up with the bullshit that I KNOW is in my future. Pls help me.
Should I pay for a VPN? Does Comcast really have bandwidth caps? Are there hidden fees? Do I have to go to war to use my own equipment? What's the best value compatible modem (DOCSIS or whatever the fuck). I'm a computer guy, but by no means a networking/ISP guy. I need teh knowledge pls. Halp.
