I hope they dont rape us for cable like Comcast has been doing. Comcast rates continue to rise. My cable/internet bill from Comcast is over 120 a month! WTF?!

I can't believe what Comcast charges - that's INSANE!!! I truly hope Verizon gets going. My daughter lives about TEN BLOCKS from the Verizon boundary and refuses to pay Comcast's usurious rates.

This is why a monopoly is bad!

Hi all! I'm absolutely thrilled that it appears tha New Jersey will finally allow cable competition! There has been a monopoly for far too long! I know we are years away from actually seeing it, but I'm sure the expanded services and choices will be worth the wait! Now, if we can do something about 100+ channels and nothing on! HA!

Watch out for Verizon, they will rape you too just give them a chance! I worked for both companies and Comcast definitely treats their employees, partners and customers better and has zero tolerance towards bad customer service. Verizon pays all their unionized employees over $1000 per week and for what! the employees are miserable which shows in the customer service.
