  1. At the present rate of “growth” this will be more of the city every year.

  2. Comcast should not be allowed to charge as much as they do for basic internet service. Stop the Monopoly!

    1. Comcast/Xfinity is way over priced and sucks. I got the1 gigabit fiber optic internet from Century Link for 1/4 the price of Xfinity 400mb package.

      1. CenturyLink is another huge ripoff company.
        I just recently received my part of a class action lawsuit against them for when they were giving one price when they were signing people up and then charging another.
        I had internet and prism TV package they are without doubt the worst company I ever dealt with and I would never do business with them again, never.

      2. It’s the same thing as healthcare. We pay more so other people can get it for free, or nearly free.

  3. don’t leave that POS “Dish” out of this discussion.
    After your one-year discount is over-get out the vaseline.

  4. It’ll be easy for the police to track what the residents are looking at.
