This afternoon, I heard a Comcast radio ad that featured an alleged Boston couple explaining that they'd switched back to Xfinity from Fios because Xfinity is faster and doesn't give them an embarrassing rash, or something.
Please, Comcast, don't insult our intelligence. No Bostonians are switching from Fios to Xfinity because no Bostonians (save a tiny, tiny number of Dot rats) can get Fios.
You'd think your ad people would have heard about the outcry over those Fios ads that had some Walhberg striking tough-guy poses in Charlestown and the Back Bay and demanding we switch to Fios or he'd come to our house and beat us up or something, and we'd all certainly switch in an instant except that, as noted above, we can't get Fios no matter how many times some random Wahlberg sneers at us.
Feh, it's enough to make this RCN customer appreciate his tiny little Internet/phone/cable provider all the more.
