Which Comcast service do I have? Comcast Rust or Comcast Tarnish?
My service is increasingly "flaky", my email is very unreliable, my
usenet service, provided by Giganews, is always stalling on me, and
worse. So which one am I being provided with? Why does my cable modem
sometimes seem lock up? The indicator lights remain fine, but my
streaming media dies like clockwork for a few seconds, and if I run a
netstat, it indicates that my connection is lost for a few seconds on a
very regular and consistent basis. So, is this Comcast "Rust" service,
or is it Comcast "Tarnish" service?
And if I wish reliable, consistent email, will I need to subscribe to
Comcast "Diamond" or to Comcast "Platinum" service, at maybe
And Usenet? If I wish the same level of service and reliability I used
to get with my 20 buck/month dialup service, will I NEED to subscribe
to Comcast "Uranium" or to Comcast "Plutonium" service, at maybe
If I need a streaming media connection which doesn't disconnect me at
the headend router like clockwork, is that Comcast "Neptune" or Comcast
"Pluto" service, at maybe $800~$1,000/month?
And when it comes to "tech support", if I really need, or even desire
someone who can actually discuss any technical issue with fluency and
knowlege, is it Comcast "Alpha-Centauri" or is it Comcast "Andromeda"
service, and I'm quite certain that it's the package which goes for
perhaps $5,000~$10,000/month, isn't it?
Sheesh! I think it's time to go back to my RELIABLE, always DEPENDABLE,
CONSISTENT, and INEXPENSIVE dialup account which was only setting me
back my $20.00/month!
This Comcast "thing" is a flippin joke!
