Here’s what everyone is talking about this week:
What would it take for the city to get Comcast to fix it’s &#$%ing service? All I can get is a “CREDIT” for not having service. I don’t want “CREDIT” I just want my internet and wifi to work!!! I’d cut the cord BUT the others aren’t much better to be honest! [Editor’s Note: That’s the problem when you’ve got a virtual monopoly… there’s no real competition so there’s no real impetus to improve, or really to even maintain a level of reliable service. Like you say, the others (satellite, wireless service, dsl internet, etc.) aren’t really better, especially when Comcast is actually up and running.
And, say I want to cut the cord and go streaming only… I’ve still got to have high-speed internet service that can handle Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, etc., in HD, on multiple devices. And who can provide that sort of bandwidth? Comcast! It’s a vicious circle of frustration, I assure you]
*** OK 4 real tho… are they ever gonna fix the railroad crossing on HWY 77? [Editor’s Note: Why, whatever do you mean? The railroad crossing on Highway 77 is in great shape. Oh, you mean the actual highway that crosses it? Yeah, that’s crap… If I had to guess, I’d reckon we’re stuck with that bumpy, uneven disaster until the railroad crossing need work again]
*** What’s the use of spending all of this money on all of these things when we can’t even get the trash picked up on time or keep all the potholes filled in? [ Editor’s Note: I’m going to assume you’re talking about West Memphis here… it’s my understanding that the trash collection has improved greatly in recent weeks, so if you’re not finding that to be the case in your particular neighborhood, I’d recommend contacting the city about it. As for the potholes, I don’t know if they already burned through their “pothole” money for this year or what, but I’ll have to agree with you, there are some real landmines out there these days. Some are on the Service Road, though, which are, I believe, the state’s responsibility, and I don’t remember the last time I saw an ARDOT crew in town making repairs]
