Wishes Comcast would serve Aiken



Why can't the good people of Aiken and surrounding areas have a cable company that provides Internet access?

Most Aiken County residents must rely on old telephone lines to reach the Internet. Why have a state-of-the-art computer system when you can only connect at 23,000 to 32,000 bytes per second? What takes a few minutes to transfer on cable takes a week to do in Aiken.

Can't we get Comcast to come to Aiken? Northland Cable has been bleeding us dry for years with price increases without giving us a better quality of service.

Comcast, please come to Aiken and give us the connections and programming that Augusta gets.
