    I'm thinking of doing the unthinkable

    Anyone here a Qwest / Direct TV user like me who is thinking of going back to mediacom?

    - I am tried of missing all of the ISU coverage that mediacom provides.

    - I am tired of Qwests crappy internet. It is supposed to be 1.5, but is usually like .9.

    Anyone in the same boat?

    Re: I'm thinking of doing the unthinkable

    I'm not sure anything could ever drive me back to Mediacom, short of moving to an apartment building that doesn't allow satellite...

    I've toyed with the idea for the last couple years, but just can't go back. Also found out fiber is coming, although it keeps getting bumped back, to my area.

    Re: I'm thinking of doing the unthinkable

    Just did that in June. My two years was up. I still miss some things about Directv, but I love seeing games on Mediacom connections, and the internet speed is 10x what I had with Qwest. When they asked me why I changed, I noted the difference there, and they had no comeback.

    I really thought this thread was going to be about how you were going to leave the kids at school for the third time this year.

    Re: I'm thinking of doing the unthinkable

    Don't get me started on qwest, since July I've had over 100 calls to them for problems with my internet dropping constantly. They've sent out 9 different techs a total of 13 times and nothing has been resolved, heck they don't even seem to care. The worst part is they are my only option for high speed internet where I live.

    I think it's illegal to ban satellites totally now

    That sucks, I can count on one hand the # of times I've lost internet with qwest over 10 years.

    Full Court + Clone Zone= No missed games this season

    Re: I'm thinking of doing the unthinkable

    The wife and I are in this very discussion. DirecTV/Qwest has gotten too expensive. The incentive to switching now is less $$, faster internet speeds, more Phone functionality. Also, the rumors I have heard about SundayTicket no longer being exclusive to DirectTV has given me hope that this move will not suck.


    Very important lesson learned... NEVER pass up the opportunity to acquire a bottle of Templeton Rye... NEVER.

    Until tonight...

    Iowa State Men's Basketball
    Tonight's game vs. Chicago State will be broadcast by Mediacom. The game was originally scheduled to be a part of the ESPN3/ESPN Full Court package, but it will NOT be shown on those two outlets after a schedule change by ESPN.
