Good "Fast reliable speeds, upgraded packages, and CONSISTENCY!"
Bad "Had to rewire from DEMARC box, had old RG-59 needed RG-6"
Overall "Buy your own modem, don't rent! Buy A DOCSIS 3.0! (UBEE DDM 3513 works GREAT!!)"

Overall it's a good service. Tech support has been here several times, in the midst of the upgrades in speed packages etc. I used a Motorola Surfboard Docsis 3.0 model and it could never hold sync with the cable signal. Replaced it with UBEE DDM3513 and have fast reliable connection, especially after having the wiring re-done from RG-59 to RG-6 Quad Shielding. Had to REQUEST with both apartment complex and Comcast for this to be done, however. Decent value for the price. I would recommend. Package pricing will expire some day and this will cost me too much...

UPDATE 1/12/13:
I now have 2 internet connections (2 modems and 2 IP's) both at 35Mbps/6Mbps. Here is just one of many speed tests done: »stage.results.speedtest.comcast.···6822.png
I recommend the UBEE DDM3513 over any Motorola modem, and purchase it too to save the $7/month in modem rental fees. Here is an offical Comcast purchase link via Amazon:

I've used both and the UBEE surpasses the Motorola in terms of speed consistency, sync time, and the flexibility to work over less than desirable COAX lines. Here's a recap of the DDM3513's features:
'Ubee Interactive DDM3513 (also known as the U10C035) Docsis 3.0 Cable Modem. This is a true business class device that has a market value of well over $135!, but I got mine for $50!"

If you're going to buy your own modem . . .

. . . get an 8x4 channel unit. The Ubee mentioned is only 4x4. I have one that will be replaced by a Motorola SB6141 tomorrow. It has 8 channels down, 4 up. Otherwise . . . it's great for what it is.

Re: If you're going to buy your own modem . . .

I live in Mississippi, no one around here will have any use for 8 downstream channels. I can guarantee u that. They do offer Extreme 50 package if I wanted, but that's is so damn expensive. If it were 50 down and 25-30 up then I would consider the price...
