Just checked my speeds after hearing about another upgrade... Some folks complain about Comcast... Personally, I haven't had any trouble at all with them, and keep getting faster and faster speeds.

I was on the "gold tier" at 6000/768 and was just upgraded to 8000/768.

Previous 4000/384 subscribers are now bumped up to 6000/384 speeds.

Here's my latest speed tests...

Just tested it a min ago...
Did three back to back tests on the DC server.

Last Result:

Oh Yeah!

The pr0n surely downloads fast. Being a network admin for my ISP has benefits.

Dont make me run back to the office and test the new 64 megabit DS3 circuit Verizon installed for us last week

but yeah, you win. Since I have the best upload though, does that mean I have to seed all of the torrrents from now on?

Hmmm......wonder why we cant get these high falooting speeds in Phoenix? I have cableamerica at 5200/768.

I'd rather they keep the extra speed, keep mine at exactly what it is and cut the price.

I kind of got that call from SBC Yahoo! DSL.

"Do you mind if we double your upload/download speeds and reduce your monthly rate by $4?"

Uhh, let me think about that...

...

No I don't mind. Do it!

Lucky. I heard that they aren't goign to be expaning the fiber optic service beyond the test markets. I REALLY hope that isn't true. Fiber puts cable and DSL to shame.

Be careful - they give you the high speeds but they won't let you use them all the time. A few years ago Comcast started putting download caps on their cable accounts, canceling accounts when the customer hit some double-secret number of bytes. The bandwidth limit seems to be somewhere around 50GB/month, but I know people who have been canceled at 15GB/mo.

I got comcast at home, and verizon DSL here.

Cable on it's worst day ever is light years better than DSL, at least in my experience.

Go to DSL Reports.com and do a "tweak" test.
Methinks your 'puter may have issues if you can't get decent speeds. (Unless you are in a real busy/oversold area)
