Good "Fastest available in my area, the order to live time was extremely quick"
Bad "Service went out 3 times in the first month I had it, seems to be smooth for the last few weeks."
Overall "Even in spite of the early outages it's kicking at&t southeast's butt all over the block."

Ordered near the beginning of December of 08 on a friday, it was installed for me Saturday morning.

Speeds are very good (full 6mbps) compared to what I was getting on at&t southeast (3mbps usually topped out at about 1.2).

The tech support has also been satisfactory, phones are answered extremely fast compared to at&t southeast (usually within 2 minutes once you've navigated the short phone-prompt tree) and techs were out to fix the issues within a day (at&t southeast was MUCH slower to answer their phones, and generally refused to deviate from their script. Also with comcast I've usually gotten an American on the line, I can't say the same for at&t southeast)

After ~8 years of dsl service it would take something as compelling as fiber to the home to get me to bother going back to at&t.

Update 01-08-2010:

Moved in the interim since my last review but I still have comcast cable. The connection hasn't had any problems since I moved, and the speed was upgraded to full time 12mbps download since my last review.

It's not Fios, but compared to at&t southeast it's leaps and bounds ahead of what little competition exists here.

Update 05-23-2013

Updated to "Blast" tier in 2012, speeds have been good and fairly consistent at ~24Mbit/down 5Mbit/up (Steam downloads consistently max the connection out)

In late March/Early April the Blast tier was bumped up to 50/10 and speeds are still consistently good.

I'd rather have Google fiber if Google weren't so damned stingy with their deployment, but Comcast will do for now.
