If Comcast comes to Hawaii (KONA), they will bring their poor customer service, higher prices, crappy internet service, etc. If you thought TWC was bad, you don’t want Comcast here. I have had so many issues with my modem needing to be reset on almost a daily basis, losing signals, slow speeds, but I’ve done my research and Comcast is holy crap bad… the only time it seems you can get through to them is when you want to purchase one of their services, but when you want something fixed, you’re passed on to one person after another until you either give up or pass out.
A monopoly like this shouldn’t be allowed because it is unfair- that is why laws exist and that is why we were given the opportunity to say quite loudly “NO!” Do your part.
