Goodbye DSL, Hello Cable

I know there are all kinds of horrible things to be said about Comcast as a company. However, my DSL seems painfully slow, and is INCREDIBLY expensive (sixty freakin' bucks a month). The only way Qwest will let me have their "good" prices is to sign a two year contract (screw you, Verizon).

I got a card in the mail saying I could get high speed internet through Comcast for $20 a month for six months. I know it goes up to $43 after that, but we'll cross that bridge when we come to it (it's still almost $20 chaper than Qwest).

If that weren't enough, check out the number I got running speed tests over both services today (I've currently got two high speed connections running into my house).

Are you freaking kidding me?!

$60 a month (Qwest)

$20 a month (Comcast)
