    Comcast users...they pop a valve today?

    Happened to do an online test..20 megs down from speakeasy.net's test sites.

    IMO if it runs stable on their systems and they find out about it.. they should leave it alone.. to me the faster it goes the more stable you have since its not longggg downloads or uploads bogging down the system as it is completed faster.

    They bought out my cable company and were waiting for approval. I hope when they get in they give us an upgrade on service. That sounds nice. What were your pings on the game server?
