SO THIS MORNING I LINKED TO A PIECE ON ComCast fleecing its customers, and later the same day I got a cable bill that had, with no explanation at all, gone up by fifty bucks a month. We obviously need more competition in this field.

The Insta-Wife called them and they were rude and inept. Plus if we want to quit they say we'll have to drive all the way across town to return the boxes. Regardless of this rather lame barrier to quitting, I think we'll be switching to something else. Any recommendations?

UPDATE: A poll!

Which cable/satellite provider sucks the least?
Dish Network
Verizon FiOS
