Just Internet. No TV, no phone. That's the normal price you pay (after the initial year). Each Comcast market is priced differently, and as far as I know, that's just the normal West Michigan pricing. Charter exists here too, in rural areas, but is mostly on par with dialup as far as I know, has has no overlap with Comcast's territory. Lots of places can get 18 or 24 Mbit from AT&T U-Verse here too, but the pricing isn't going to be much cheaper.
$72 USD (54 EUR) for I guess 30/5 from Comcast (who doesn't really advertise what their speeds are).
It is probably faster than is available in a lot of other areas, with other cable providers or people stuck with just DSL as their only option.
I'm not going to pay money for subtitles. I prefer dubs, and I can already tell there are too many little kids posting in this thread below from the looks of it. Anybody who thinks dubs vs subs is anything more than personal preference and opinions needs to just grow up. I'm not going to argue any more about it, so back to what's important here. The selection on Netflix is limited, and I've watched most everything good there already, so I am looking for more sources (that doesn't involve torrents....), but only if it's in English (meaning dubbed).
More anime than what Funimation has on Netflix perhaps? Now you've given them free advertising, and I might just go sign up.
Choosing to name yourself something that doesn't use modern characters (in both cases) is your own fault.
1 line of UTF-8 characters for "name" should cover everybody who matters. Trying to divide things up into first/last or force any other convention upon names is asking for trouble. (Although it's hilarious how many people's 3rd party form auto-fill software will enter just their first name into the "name" box when purchasing on my website for example...)
Most of these are valid, but seriously, if you fall outside of:
11. People’s names are all mapped in Unicode code points.
40. People have names.
Then, well, wtf....
No, my TV is 200' away and up a floor. There is an Xbox360, and Samsung Blu-ray player. It seems like the TV supports crappy DLNA, which doesn't work with MKV, and the Xbox is useless for anything as long as I'm not going to pay for Gold. The Blu-ray player has 4 built-in features: Youtube, Blockbuster, Netflix, Pandora.
Does this somehow get my MKV files on my computer to play on my TV? Lots of features, but lots of confusion as to what XMBC actually does, if you've never touched it before.
Existing HD titles already require 5Mbit/s (2.3GB/hour).
Basically. SuperHD is exactly nothing new.
I've had all texts blocked for years, and you're damn right I'll ignore any text that does get through. Never used them, don't see the point. I don't want pay-per-use, I want blocked 3G/4G data, just like I have blocked text messages. No incoming, no outgoing, no surcharges. Plain and simple.
Thanks for being a dick about it, and completely missing the point of what the customer (me) wants.
Also, please remember that I've never agreed to any changes in the contract. Just because I pay month-to-month now, doesn't give AT&T any legal right to change the terms of the contract. Same as renting a house or apartment. They can't change the terms of your rent without you signing a form to agree to it. I also never agree to any change when I pay my bill, so I'm pretty sure I could fight and win in court to not have a data plan. Not that it would help random other consumers or people changing from one provider to another though, so why bother. The first provider who DOES let me sign up with no data plan, will be the one I switch to.
What about if you had a 1-year contract so many years ago, that you could have probably upgraded to 2-3 few phones over the years, but never did. I can't really be under any contract anymore. How could they force me to sign up for a package I don't want just by putting my SIM card in another (second hand) phone? Doesn't even seem like that would be legal at that point.
How is this even legal, if I'm not under any current contract with AT&T?
So can I get somebody's old unlocked iPhone and put my SIM card in it, without being forced to buy a data plan yet? Wifi-only would be just fine, and I see no reason to pay exorbitant fees for tiny amounts of bandwidth on 3G or 4G data.
Filters have gotten so good, they now block most legitimate email too!
Seriously. I'm getting sick of AOL, Earthlink, and MSN just deleting order receipt emails I send out to people when they buy my software. (Gmail and a million others don't have this problem).
The best part is when the customer emails to complain, I reply with their order details, then a few days later they forward the same complaint email with "2nd notice" added to the subject line. If I do reach the customer, not once has the deleted order receipt email been in their spam/junk/bulk email folders. ISPs just accept email for delivery and delete it it seems.
http://www.softlayer.com/ - their base dedicated servers for $159/month come with 3000GB/month of bandwidth, exactly what you need. They've been around forever and a ton of other VPS people basically just resell their stuff anyway.
