Comcast will let you get 6 months of their cable service that is about 4 times faster (in my download tests). But then you have to take a break. Officially, you must not be a customer for 30 days between 6 month periods. I have read that if you wait a week they will sign you back up, but I didn't want to try that. So, I just got the Verizon today and certainly, for $14.99 it is great compared to ordinary dial-up. Verizon gives you 30 days to cancel, otherwise, it is a 1 year contract. Already, I can see a slight difference in how fast some pages load, but after 25 minutes of use, it is way too early to decide. What do you think about this choice?
