on a less depressing note, i was talking to my neighbor the other day and he was telling me that he just switched over to FiOS Gigabit, and how awesome it was… also said that they had a promotion going on right now, and that it was only $70 a month — which ain’t bad! was kinda surprised at that, to be honest.
so i went ahead and gave verizon a call yesterday afternoon to ask them some questions about it, and 15 minutes later found myself signed up with a scheduled installation date of july 6th.
yup, that’s right… after thinking about cutting the cord for the past year or two, i’m finally doing it… after i get this gigabit installed and setup, i’ll be calling comcast and cancelling my service… dunno how much they’ll shaft me with their damn “cancellation fee”, but honestly i don’t care at this point… my comcast bill went from $160 a month up to $210 a few months back, and i’ve been seriously thinking about this ever since…. it’s $70 a month for the gigabit, with another $15 for verizon’s modem/router, so it’ll be $85 a month.
not too shabby, aye? :)
at some point, i might look into buying my own router/wifi so i don’t have to pay that $15 monthly rental charge… but i’ll have to do some research and figure out what my options are, how much it is, etc.
anywho, pretty excited mang.
