I don't use Comcast (in a Charter area but no cable internet) as I'm on DSL but your problem might be that the node you're on is getting overloaded with people downloading, especially during the day and now that school is out most everywhere, probably a lot more people (especially kids) online hogging bandwidth.. Either that or it's just Comcast being stupid (same goes for Charter). Have you done any sort of speed test?
Try using speedtest.net and run a test while not uploading or downloading anything to check your connection speed. You also might be better off going to dslreports.com, joining the site and making a topic in their Comcast forum if your issue doesn't clear up.
You can't predict random.
