The poor excuse for a cable company in my area. The only cable modem service we can get is 1-way, which sucks. The quality of most of the channels is sub-par, especially cartoon network which has annoying lines running through it. The signal isn't strong enough to go over the local broadcast channels in the area, so channel 6 would ghost with the local ABC broadcast. They seem not to care, but since they're a monopoly in the area, why should they? Did I mention that we pay $35 for this crap, and only 40 channels too. I suppose the only way to get good service is to order digital cable but its +$10/mo and supposedly has mpeg artifacts
