Welcome the new neighbors and get 'em a cable modem

What do you do when you're a er, "guest in our country" who's plum tuckered out after a hard day doing the jobs "no one else will do?" Why of course you hop on the Internet with your Comcast cable modem:
Comcast has joined the ranks of U.S. Internet service providers offering programming packages for Spanish-speaking consumers, partnering with Terra Networks -- an online service with world headquarters in Madrid -- to create Comcast Latino.

The service melds Spanish-language news with Spanish versions of other Comcast high-speed Internet features, such as e-mail, that previously were available in only English.
Comcast claims to be "the nation’s largest broadband Internet provider." The "nation" part is only loosely speaking of course.
