I probly won't get digital voice too, I have no reason for a phone line. Is that the only thing that the digital voice is for?
The Digital Voice plan is phone line but relies on cable internet to work.

7 Email Addresses .. and 7 personal Web Pages at 1GB each.
I use my web pages for several things.

I like Comcast .. but it seems like you have to nag about pricing alot.
We're about ready to make another trip to complain and see if they'll drop the price again.

If you have problems .. you may have to call several times ..
till you get someone who knows what they're taking about.

Check also WOW Cable if you have in your area. They offer 15Mb and its cheaper than Comcast. No download limit.
You can get the 3 Pack cable, phone and internet way cheaper.

FWIW .. I refuse to use Cable Phone.
My AT&T landline costs me ~$19 mth.
If I use the house phone for LD .. I use a Sams card at ~.04/min.

I also have an old phone, not wireless, so I can call even if the power goes down.
I know someone who's house burned down .. because they also lost power and couldn't call 911.

What exactly do you mean about the pricing? Do they raise your personal bill?

haha, yea, that's with pretty much any place. It's alomst impossible to get someone who knows what they're talking about, let alone someone who can speak and understand english (at least with verizon )
The only reason I've ever had to call was to see if I could drop the modem from the bill. Ironic that they don't even know what and ISR is... lol

YES.
Then we go to the office and complain about all the ads for cheaper rates.
They usually lower the price .. Then it starts all over again in about a year.

Kinda like .. if you too bashfull to complain .. They'll stick it to you.
The only thing made in this country anymore .. Is scams.
