Well, here's the sitaution. My parents went away on a weeks vacation. But, they left the keys to the brand new Porshe. Would they mind..umm..well....of course not! OOPS! Mind mind went out on me!

I am moving and I am looking into what to get. I have Comcast cable right now and it is DAMN EXPENSIVE! I also go ttheir cable modem and they offer HDTV (I do have a HDTV SET). But I was looking around to see what else is out there. A couple of my friends told me to get Direct TV. Pros..COns..Whatever.. I need help

What about my cablemodem? Verizon wants me for their DSL but I heard that crap is really slow. Right now, I am spoiled on my cablemodem. Any suggestions on what company I shoudl use? I am moving to Odenton!

Dude, I would stick with Cable Modem, DSL is nice but if all you do is download then a cable modem is great. I am using Direct Wav, internet, very slow and unreliable, lots of outages during the day or basically it can' t find the satellite. Its a no go for gaming ping is well in to the 1000's...yes thousands.

So Cable Modem is usually the fastest and DSL is a close second...Direct wav for internet really stinks but TV is ok with it.

Good Luck


Ride your ride and be safe this season.

stay with comcast for their internet. ive never had any down time and d/l speed has always been good even over wireless. go with Direct TV or Dish for the TV. Comcast's digital cable isnt much better than the regular. You get a on screen guide and a some more stations, no big deal. Might want to get a DVR too.

I have decided top stick with cable. The only thing that came up is that cable wasnt installed in any of the bedrooms. So, he couldnt guarantee that the siding wouldnt fall off the house after he drilled. So, I bought a wireless router.

What are the pros and cons of this thing. I bought the netgear 54 mbps route and card.
