Re: [Speed] Congested Comcast Peering with Akamai, Google in Mid

I didn't go through the entire thread thoroughly, but wanted to add an idea.....

I had the same beef with my 105/20 service. I eventually figured out that the cause was using DNS servers other than Comcasts. This resulted in me being connected to the wrong CDN sites. I switched to the Comcast DNS servers being offered to me via DHCP, and my download speeds jumped dramatically. So if you are using alternate DNS, consider giving your primary/secondary Comcast DNS servers a try.
