More comcast woes

So, I have had comcast out today for the 4th time in as many weeks. I have been having video and data reception issues. A couple of weeks ago I was advised to replace my modem, which I dutifully did, but then this weekend was an internet free zone at the geekybrit household, as my modem was not working at all.

    […] So a couple of strange things happened today. First of all I had a comcast technician out again, and was griping about it on this blog. As you may have seen, I have griped about Comcast before, and a few people have commented about similar issues. What has never happened before, is that I got a response from Comcast. […]
