The quest for lower cost internet service

In my ongoing quest for lower cost internet service to the house I switched from Comcast/Xfinity to Verizon/FIOS today.

It turned out to be relatively quick install of FIOS internet-only service, which works fine with my own router (you only need a Verizon router if you don’t already have a router or if you need TV and phone services as well as internet).

It also turns out to be relatively painless to cancel Comcast – about 28 minutes internet chat… not at all what I had feared after reading stories on the internet; Comcast did want to make me a better deal – but they could not go below $49.99/month.

Basic internet service should be commodity priced – but it is not yet… so we will continue to play this game until it is.
