Clearly not, if you can't do torrents!

I don't think any here block the relevant ports, but if they did, that'd be a make-or-break thing for me.

They do here, hence I use DSL, with broad ISP choice.

Comcast got too big, and dropped the customer service part of their business model.

Comcast has never done anything particularly horrible to me, but their sports channels are terrible/low-budget.

My family has the Comcast Triple Play: Comcast digital cable, Comcast High Speed Internet, and Comcast home phone service. It's all average, but it's a pain in the ass to work through problems with them.

The big ISPs here seem to rely on their good name exposure to hook n00bs who don't know there are much better smaller ISPs out there. So all these people who know nothing about the Internet sign up on plans that are shocking value and think they're getting a bargain since it's bundled with their phone plan and they get a discount on their bill of FIVE DOLLARS A MONTH WOWZ0RZ.
