It's Comcastic! This is honestly the first time I've heard anyone have anything positive to say about Comcast.
I'm not even going to try to post my speed test. Pathetic 512kb DSL.

So far, Comcast is good. =P I need to get a long ethernet cable to run from my router to my PS3. Even though my router is 6 feet from my PS3, it does have 100% signal but nowhere near as good as wired. :D

I have a 10MB DSL at the office. Downloads off Usenet usually peg at about 1140KB/s.

It says

Local Area Connection 2
Speed: 100.0 Mbps
Staus: Connected

down on the corner of my screen on the little pc icons down there. If that says 100, then why is this test say otherwise? :confused:

Darnit :zraped: by technology again. lol

Not too shabby for having a large number of torrents running between my wife's PC and mine. Gotta love that upload..

hmm. This is wireless at work, haha. I wonder what speeds would be when I do this on my custom build home machine. I'll have to try it later.

I'd be calling them up in arms about that upload speed...

The Comcast here on base is horribly overloaded, so a lot of times it gets pretty bogged down. I've been having issues lately with horrible pings, so they are coming out to look at it on Saturday, we'll see how that goes.

It moves files decent enough though.

I've got sucktastic and cheap Centurytel. Er, Centurylink. The service is terrible; the network goes down at LEAST twice a month. And now that my 2 year old modem is dying they won't replace it. Good alternatives for $40/mo? :zbash:
