After discovering online that Comcast claims they will service my address... I called them on the phone today. They will have a contractor come out and survey. They said if the house is within 300 feet of the road, it will be free service (just hook me up). However, I know that the house is at least 500 feet from the road... and the service rep was very nice and told me that they WILL service me... but there is a charge to hookup from the road if we are that far off. I expected that... but I'm still thrilled that they will do it. It takes 3 to 4 weeks for the contract crew to survey and get back with the office folks etc... but I'm a bit excited that I may leap into the 21st century and get off dialup... (I cannot get DSL... I could get Satellite but that is WAY too expensive). Just keeping my fingers crossed that the initial link up isn't too expensive.
