After years of throttled internet and bad customer service earning it a reputation as the worst internet provider in America, Comcast scores a golden poo as Consumerist.com's 2010 Worst Company in America. I promised myself I wouldn't cry.
Every year, the Consumerist pits some of the worst companies in the country against each other in a knock-down, drag-out fight to see which deserves to be called the absolute worse. Companies like Bank of America, Ticketmaster and Cash4Gold fought admirably this year, but ultimately the reader vote and coveted prize went to the company that's paved the way for other internet providers to screw us senseless for years to come.
"The match-ups witnessed in this year's tournament were intense," said Ben Popken, Co-Managing Editor of Consumerist.com. "Never did we think we would see certain companies, like Apple go as far as they did, and others like last year's winner AIG, drop out in the first round. We are honoured to provide Comcast with the Golden Poo Award."
If you weren't able to participate in this year's voting, don't fret. You can still read through the gripping tale by clicking the link below, and see for yourself why Comcast deserved this award more than any other company this year.
Congratulations, Comcast! I'd send you an e-card or something, but I need to watch my bandwidth, jerks.
