Have you switched from Comcast to RCN?

I am thinking of switching from Comcast to RCN in order to save money. Has anyone switched from one company to the other? Have you seen good savings over comparable packages? I went to RCN's website like I was going to purchase new service and put everything in my cart. I tried to make it really close to what I have now as far as Premier Digital, Phone, Internet, Tivo, extra digital box, router, modem, unpublished number, etc. Have I been paying too much this long? The monthly estimated bill (which includes estimated fees and taxes) was 30% lower than Comcast!! Trying to decide if it would really be worth it. Thanks for the feedback!!!

  • I had RCN for years and I recently switched when our internet only bill went up to $90 a month. In combination with a few reactivation fees of $40 the bill was up $130 a month. It was too much. We are taking our chances with a slower speed with Comcast. $24.99 a month.

    Full irony of bringing up such an old post....i too lowered my bill about a year and a half ago by switching from rcn to Comcast. Rcn refused to match any of the promos they were mailing me or Comcast promos. They would only lower my bill by reducing services....

Rcn refused to match any of the promos they were mailing me or Comcast promos. They would only lower my bill by reducing services. I told them I was cancelling on x date. Called multiple times. Canceled on x date, after Comcast was activated. They didn't even try to stop me from cancelling that day. Then they call and email me begging to come back. Sorry rcn I have a three year contract with Comcast and couldn't be happier at the moment...

Looking for a good electrician and a carpenter. Thank yo

I and a few friends are in need of good tradesmen. People who back up their work and don't compromise safety. Thank you.

  • I’ve been having great luck with T&D Electrical, who rewired my whole second floor and will be doing my first floor next. They are all about following code and explaining why doing things a certain way is safe or not safe. They always ask before they cut into a wall, even if you give them the go ahead to do whatever. And they clean up like whoa at the end of the day. http://tdelectrical.net/

Trusted Neighborhood Plumbers

Flash!

Urban pseudo-electrician seeks knowledgeable and trustworthy Plumber to alleviate the aforementioned individuals lack of skills in the following areas:

Installation of complex(again I’m a pseudo-electrician) under-sink water filtration system

My gosh darn guestroom toilet that is perpetually running, leaking water teasingly and arbitrarily, and this after changing out the wax ring and tank bolts, the condensation alone driving me mad, rendering any credence with my significant other dashed against the jagged landscape of ineptitude.....

Forgive me. I digress.

I would very much appreciate any recommendations that those of you, my wonderful neighbors, can provide in the realm of indoor plumbing.

Thank you!

  • Jeffrey Littleton If you can't be a poet, be the poem.

    You need a new flush valve kit, the condensation is from the constant running water keeping the tank and bowl cold(er).

    We've had good luck in our building using Devon Plumbers, and Netzel Plumbers.

Cedar siding contractor needed for exterior work

I own an old Victorian in the neighborhood (Rogers Park) that needs cedar shake shingle replacement on the 2nd story exterior. It also needs some light carpentry work in the process, trim replacement. It also has a turret.
I need a good reliable contractor who does shake shingle siding work, not faux vinyl panels, but actual shake shingle siding. Recommendations with references are appreciated.
Thanks!

  • I had similar work done on my home. I hired Agustin Rojas Roofing and they did a fantastic job. You can reach him at 773-425-7631.
