Comcast is HORRIBLE in Colorado

I just called Comcast (March 7) and asked them when will Colorado be lucky and start enjoying the new speeds.
Comcast has absolutely no idea.
They are BAD.
They are plain HORRIBLE.
How can a company be run so poorly and inefficiently.
SHAME ON COMCAST.

My speeds suck







I am on the Blast! tier or at least that is what I am being billed and paying for. SB6121 modem. Download should should be way better than this.

When do we get this upgrade in the Twin Cities MN area?
Speedtest.net is all over the place on different tests whereas comcast's is fairly consistent.

SLOW in Colorado

March 9, 2013:
Still no speed upgrade in Colorado.
Wonder when will abysmal, horrible, uncaring Comcast will upgrade our speeds.
Why does not Comcast publish the dates on when each of their regions will get the new speed upgrades.
It is just common business sense.

Re: SLOW in Colorado

Update on March 13: Still no speed upgrade in Colorado.
I will be patient and wait till the end of the month as you informed us here.
Hopefully I will soon let you know here when (and not if) I will start enjoying the new upgrade speed.

No sign of an upgrade in Southern KY, yet. I am in Franklin, KY and served from the Nashville region. I should mention we are under a trial from Comcast that gives us a data cap. Not sure if that will affect us getting the upgrade or not.

Exactly what infrastructure did Comcast invest money in?

Just another marketing ploy by greedy Comcast.
But watch, next year, we'll see the increases in our bills.

There's nothing for free, ESPECIALLY from Comcast.

Comcast should be broken up.

What a joke. Comcast has successfully played the game of Chicago school economics. Their moat-index rating is the highest in the country this they are able to bend customers over a barrel (charging them for the privilege) and somehow get non-news like this posted on every tech "news" site of consequence. The US government invented the Internet and we now lay behind Bulgaria in connectivity while we pay more for the 30th best Internet service in the world. Ladies and gentleman behold Milton Freedman's wet dream on display (and subsidized by our tax dollars). Eff comcast and the other oligopolies. Shop locally and make regulation work for the people.

Indiana Blast not at 50/10

I'm a Blast customer in Greenwood (suburb of Indianapolis) and not seeing 50/10. www.comcast.com advertises downloads of 30 and that's what I'm getting.

Re: Indiana Blast not at 50/10

It's possible your modem is getting the wrong configuration file. I'd call 1-800-COMCAST to confirm everything on your account is correct. If you area was formerly Insight BB it's possible something got hosed up during the transition.

Re: New Speeds in South FL

My download speeds have not increased but my upstream has doubled. I'm in North Fort Myers.
I was on 25/4 and I usually saw 33/6 at off peak times. Today, after power cycling the modem and router, I'm still getting 33 down but my up has gone to 10.86...

Wondering when my downstream will go up?

Re: New Speeds in South FL

Well, I called Comcast and my modem is too old for the new speeds, not DOCSIS 3. I went to the office to trade it in and was told that because we get our telephone through Comcast, they can't switch my modem out in the office. It has to be mailed to me... for $10 shipping... and it takes 5 to 7 business days... BOOO!!! I want my free speed increase NOW lol!
I also checked on the pricing for the new Extreme Tier. My Blast Tier costs $38 a month in the triple play package we have. To get the Extreme Tier I would have to drop the Triple Play, pay $99 a month for the Extreme and redo a Double Play package for TV and Phone. For some reason, Extreme is not available in a Triple Play package...

Whatever, 50/10 is good enough I guess... Not really though, I would love 105/20!! But that is stupid expensive.
