I love Comcast!

For free? Or did you have to pay for it?

If it's free, I need to talk to them about redoing my bill, since I'm paying extra for 6Mb. I had another cable company that did the same thing and never told me, just kept billing the higher rate.

It's free. Within the past 8 months or so they have gone from 2mb/s to 4, and now to 6. They are doing this because they are losing so many clients to Verizon. Neither upgrade came with a premium charge :)

It's all about Cable.
Not in my area, Massachusetts. This change just took affect a few days ago, we were previously at 4mb/s which was only upgraded about 6 months ago.
:p I hate comcast. They donate all sorts of money to propaganda organizations. I have broadband from them, but I switched to satellite for my TV because I didn't want to give them any more $$ then I had to. At least they gave you your upgrade for free!

3.3 or 3.6 depending on site...but I'm guessing areas with competition are getting the faster speeds instead of all comcast customers.

when the chicago area gets fiber or something similar comcast will up the speeds I bet.

But then I'll move on to SBC Fiber since my bro works for them

I despised my Comcast connection, it worked maybe 70% of the time and the rest the customer service was too inept to figure out what happened.

I could get 6 meg threw adelphia, well it's going to be comcast. But, it cost 56.00 a month .. I don't feel the need to pay for it .. I'm just waiting for fios to come out. Then I will be able to tell all others to go get a real connection lol ..

By the way, I have Verizon dsl. I had it for a year now, never had a problem. I used to have cable threw adelphia. I went beck them this week, for a couple of days, the first day I had it back I had to reboot the modem six times .. I am glad I didn't cancell my dsl service yet. Adelphia Cable is going bye bye ..

If the cable companies want to be abl eto beat FIos and dsl. They should lower their prices. And not raise them every year .. I pay 29.99 a month for my dsl.
