So, I live in Odenton and pretty pissed off about the low-grade internet provided by Comcast, and am looking for some kind of alternative. What's even worse is that they seem to have created a monopoly here in Odenton where FiOS isn't available. I swear to Jesus, the only reason Comcast can get customers is if the customers don't have any other option.

Does anyone know of any ISPs that reach out to Odenton?

I hate to say it but you're kind of SOL if you want an alternative to comcrap and in a non-FiOS area in MD. If you're not a heavy bandwidth user, you can prolly get away with a decent VZ DSL account.

Believe me....FIOS is not all its cracked up to be. I pay for the fastest services available and 80% of the time (yes, I said 80%) it is not that fast. I constantly run speed tests and I'm being completely honest when I say my machine almost never runs as fast as it should.

I'm thinking about trying CLEAR, but I'm a little hesitant becuase I can't find many reviews in this area.
