    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.

      May I suggest my favorite speed test site?  I highly recommend it for testing both upload and download speed, between you and various cities around the USA.

      http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/

      The web is probably overloaded with people trying to set that stupid world record for firefox today.

      The only thing they're doing is forcing the web to slow down, in exactly the same way a virus attack would.  Stupid!

        well personally am not exprencing any issues with C*mcast as of lately

        which is a first Eek since they recently came here and ran a fresh line from the service pole a month ago and even more shocking is just when they admitted that they were in the process of updating some of thar out dated equipment

        so I'd seriously urge all C*mcast users to light up that 888 number and start bchin till U get some results

        btw thanks Todd for that other speed test link

            Todd I took your advice and did a test at speakeasy and the results:

            Download Speed: 4233 kbps (529.1 KB/sec transfer rate)
            Upload Speed: 353 kbps (44.1 KB/sec transfer rate)
