Comcast Internet 12Mbps/$24.99, 20Mbps/$29.99 for 12 months
I am in San Jose, California. Please let others know if this works in your areas too.
12/16: I'm a current customer in the Chicago area. Spoke online to a rep and was told the promotion is not in my area yet.
12/15: called in to cancel cuz i was thinking about switching to Clear, they offered me 24.99 for 6 months. i have my own modem. -houston, tx
12/15: existing customer - called in while on way to home from work - got another 6 months at 24.99/month (12MB) - San Mateo County, Bay Area.
1/19/2011: Canceled TV and Internet on 1/6/2011 (Promotion ended and they wouldn't extend): Called in and got 6 months at $19.99/month for 15 Mbps internet - Philadelphia, PA
~1/15/2011: Kansas City area. ATT customer. Called to see what they will offer me. 39.99 for Blast for 6mo was as low as I talked them down. Called back 2/7 and they are saying service is not available at that address. Jumped on online chat and stated that I want the Blast $30 for 12 mo promo. Rep told me that she could only get me 6 mo for $30 (without even checking my address) and transferred me to new sales dept for 12mo. The rep there told me my building is not hooked up. Bottom line - you should be able to get at least 6 mo of Blast for $30.
~02/09/2011: Union City, New Customer. Got the Performance plan for 19.99 12 months with contract.
Economy 3 Mbps (19.99)
Perfomance 12 Mbps (24.99 some were able to get this for 12 months)
Blast 20 Mbps (throttled, not sure what he meant by this, 29.99 for 12 months no questions asked)
Throttling refers to isp's attempt at stopping or limiting your bandwidth when they detect certain activities from its clients. This is usually done for p2p so if you torrent and they detect it, they can try to limit your bandwidth. I do not know the details specifically for this though.
Sugar Land, TX (77479) - Best is "Blast 16Mbps"/$29.99 for 6 months and claimed to required DOCSIS 3.0 modem / 12Mbps/$24.99 not available (chat; CSR MaChristina)
Houston, TX 77082 - Blast+basic cable 29.99 12month no contract no installation fee no haggle
Atlanta, GA, 30052 , Blast for 35 a month(claimed to be 16mb). Offered 12 mb for 30. Almost 60 dollars after the contract wears off though. 10 dollar installation (vs 10 shipped), free wireless router when you ask for it.
NOTE: Comcast use their PowerBoost speed as their advertising speed. For example, The "Perfomance 12Mbps" will get up to 12Mbps with PowerBoost (only the first 20 MB) and up to 8Mbps without PowerBoost (after the first 20MB).*This statement is not correct. The performance 12mbps is the actual speed, performance internet gives 15mbps wth powerboost. The blast tier is 16mbps and 22mbps with powerboost.
! NOTE: COMCAST HAS A MONTHLY BANDWIDTH LIMIT OF 250 GB.
