Believe it or not, Comcast is not the most hated telecommunications company in the country. The American Customer Satisfaction Index, out Tuesday, ranks America's most loved and hated companies offering pay-TV, phone, and internet service, and though Comcast finds itself among the least loved companies, it's not the most despised out there. The five companies that top the list, as well as the five that bring up the rear, with a score out of 100, per 24/7 Wall St.:


  1. Apple (phone): 81
  2. Microsoft/Nokia (phone): 80
  3. Samsung (phone): 80
  4. Vonage (phone): 80
  5. TracFone Wireless (phone): 77
  1. Mediacom (TV): 56
  2. Frontier Communications (internet): 56
  3. Windstream (internet): 57
  4. Xfinity/Comcast (TV): 58
  5. Mediacom (internet): 58
