They don't make it easy to turn off either.

You can try it if you want when you know you are not going to use the computer for awhile. If you depend on voip or wifi 24/7 then I wouldn't do that. While unplugged those services won't work. Comcast Voip will work for a little while unplugged.
That immediately kills my home phone if I do that, my old modem came with a battery to keep it going for a while.

The new combo one they will sell you a battery but it doesn't come with one.

We just got a new provider in the area I've been tempted to switch, I probably will soon when Comcast raises my bill.

derekimo,

Comcast does have lower speeds. It maybe a little buffering but to me, it sure better than dial-up. If comcast gets to high, then I will consider switching as well. I also have a provider here that fiber and reasonable for just internet service. We are going to be moving with-in the next year or so. It depends on what the place offers or allows if we got to a rental.

Yeah, I've looked at their different packages and almost switched to ATT last year just to lower my bill but they countered with a big discount for a year so I stuck with them.

The new provider is a much smaller company and has reasonable rates so I wouldn't mind changing to them.

I'm looking to move too but that's another ordeal.
