    I pay $225 a month for cable, internet and phone and they are talking about raising rates again. I contend that stealing is wrong, but cable companies monopolize areas and then grease the local politicians to keep out competition. If you have a dish, they just charge you more for internet then if you "bundled". License to steal.

    This is what happens when you challenge the government sponsored monopoly. The guy should have known better.

    I'm sure his making money off of it was what really pushed the issue.

    Packet sniffer.

    Sounds like the name of a retarded kid Motor Head went to school with.

    When FIOS rolled out, it was internet-only for the first year and a half. We were then able to get tv after the right palms were greased, etc, etc.

    In Philly, Comcast owns most of the politicians. It took a while for Verizon to crack that nut and start installing fiber.
