We have Verizon, which isn't working as well as it should. We've had them all.
We started with Comcast and then, when it got too expensive for the same stuff, we went to Dish. Dish was good, but it really doesn't work when it's cloudy. I thought that was just some kind of nonsense made up by the Comcast people in their commercials but it's true.
Then, when my dad moved in because of his knee replacement surgery, we went back to Comcast because Dish didn't give us local sports. Comcast was worse then every! In four years of Dish, the repair guy was out once. The Comcast repair guy had to come 3 days after installing it and was their at least 10 times in the year we had it.
Then we went to Verizon Fios, cable optic stuff. We have the phone service, internet and TV. It had been working great up until a month ago when we would turn off the TV but the "box" would still be on and vice versa. Also the fast forwarding through commercials of recording stuff isn't working right. And whenever my husband turns on the desk top computer, the internet connection is lost on my laptop.
Yes, I wish we could just go through a list and take the channels we want. We've got all kinds of sports channels that we don't watch and we don't need. It should be ala cart.
