    I been having this issue with my upload speed only being 2k for the past week. Comcast has told me daily that they are working on it. They have yet to fix it ! I am starting to believe all the horror stories I been told about this company.

    Is anyone else having this issue ???

    My download is 11 meg and my upload is 2k !!! It takes forever for pages to load, and I get a lot of time outs. It took me an hour to post this for example !! Needless to say I am getting pretty fed up with it ...

    Pretty much normal here:

    Download Speed: 8273 kbps (1034.1 KB/sec transfer rate)
    Upload Speed: 700 kbps (87.5 KB/sec transfer rate)

    Download should go way up once powerboost is active in my area.
