Great, so now verizon can provide the same poo service, at 3 times what its worth, as comcast!! Yay!!! Please tell me they won't be using any of the same technical lines, towers etc... and is only a sign up place. But they really do not even need the comcast people trying to sign people up for wireless service they know nothing about. Those people don't even have a clue about the services their own company provides!! Like they really need added distractions!

Very poor customer service

The only consistent thing we have received from Comcast is poor customer service and price increases for fewer services.

When you see the "at no additional cost for six months", start to worry.

Great. Now the 2 most

Great. Now the 2 most expensive companies are joining up to promote even more expensive "packages". You'll have to have an experienced accountant and a lawyer to read through all the fine print that these new service packages will have to offer! Forget asking the guy in the store....he'll ACT like he knows, but he doesn't.

EXACTLY my thought, Just My

EXACTLY my thought, Just My Opinion. The last thing I needed was the proprietors of the two biggest ripoff bills I have joining forces. Paying for 250 channels I don't care about just to get the 10-15 that I actually like is ridiculous, as is having to pay for 500 cell minutes a month just to be able to use the maybe 100 I actually need.

We are in deep trouble

We are in deep trouble when these two giants join forces. Comcast gives no choice on channels you receive - you pay for what they want you to have; they can't think outside the box and allow you to select channels you like and pay accordingly; and Verizon is no better. Each of these companies allow, and I just that term loosely, you to select from the packages they want you to have - no option other than to drop their "service" and pay additional charges for the past privilege of using them. I think this is collusion and the FTC should investigate.
