Re: Comcast "Economy Internet"

Speaking of Comcast, I received a postcard from them this week promoting 
an "Economy Internet" service. 

The ad focuses on all the junk software and services they bundle, and 
conveniently doesn't mention the data rate anywhere except in the fine 

How slow is it? 768 Kbps. Funny, given all the ads they've ran over the 
past few years pointing out how much faster cable modem service was 
compared to 768 Kbps DSL (even though most DSL users are probably 
running at 1.5 Mbps). 

So for only $25/month you get all the speed of a $15 DSL connection and 
all the port filtering of Comcast.
