$22.95 for 6 months with free basic install, $44.95/mo. after that. 3down and 256 up. Excellent salesperson who followed up with me as I had been waiting for network upgrade in my area for availability. Install cd was faulty and would'nt load but when I called tech support they were able to get me online without the software in a matter of 5 minutes and this was during the early evening rush hour. I would say so far that I am satisfied with the service and value from Comcast.

Recently went to the gold package 4.0/384. Speeds on the silver pkg actually dropped somewhat after several months and remained steady at 2.7 down and 230 up. I'm now getting 3.5/340 pretty regularly and anticipating the 6/784 upgrade. Overall, Comcast service has been extremely reliable with no outages at all. Very dependable.

Tried the gold tier for a couple months ( 6/768) and really could not see the value for the increase in $$, at least for basic surfing and that. Other than the latest 2 DNS issues, which I was able to work around thank's to this site, I have been happy with the service from Comcast. I have not had any other issues at all. I would not mind, however, if they were to lower there prices.

Still satisfied with service. Swapped out the rented sb3100 modem and purchased a 5100 motorola and speeds increased consistently.

Just received D3 upgrade for no additional charge! Picked up new modem at local office and am now showing 22/5 tier with powerboost. Nice upgrade. This is a smoking connection! No Fios or ATT U Verse around here.
