    Is this some kind of business account or residential? What package are you paying for? That's insane!

    This is not my house, I wish. I am a Comcast Headend Tech yes. It is a test of the 1GB service. We darn near hit 1.2Gb at peak. "If " something like this were available to the public right now, this would be crazy expensive. There are test markets (Google) offering 1Gb with fiber to the premise for a reasonable price but obviously extremely limited.
    It will happen eventually. It's so fast that it's freaky when using.

    You would need a huge torrent with a ton of seeds, or a ton of smaller torrents at once to really utilize that at home! We can all dream!

    Thinking youll need a higher and PC also to really capitalize on the browser side, Maybe up the connection limit in the browsers?

    Odd first post.. me thinky troll or multi.

    That is not indicative to even the worst case scenario. Something very wrong and likely on your end. Bad router is a good place to look.

    Think what you want — it's only odd because you happen to work for the company that blames everything and everyone else for such problems. I've had 5 techs here within the past month and they must learned at the same place you did.

    Maybe give him a case # and see if he can look into it? It's not odd that he works for the company that you're pissed off at. He doesn't know your issue(s).

    Probably a line issue right on your street, or the line going to your house, or inside your house...how it's run to the modem, possibility of bad or improper use of splitters.
    I'm a reseller for many different ISPs..across a few different states...and out of all of them, Comcast is my favorite to work with, does the best job, has the least amount of issues. Many of my clients are on Comcast bandwidth...and I have the least issues with them. They're my first choice of bandwidth providers to use. If I know the job I have to do involves Comcast...I can breath a sigh of relief. If I know a job I have to do involves another ISP.....I usually dread that day with most of the other big ISPs, because I know it will be a cluster $%^& and involve tons of my time.

    Nope, I work at the headend where the product originates. I work on and touch the equipment that sends and receives to your home. Those speeds are the result of something like Stonecat is referring to. While it is certainly possible that "your" service is crappy, all I am saying is that we don't provide those speeds. It's not even possible for something like that to leave my building without alarms, tickets and immediate action. You likely have an RF issue and also likely very close to your premise or the entire area would be screaming. Try and refrain from the ignorant assumptions also as it adds nothing to the conversation.
