Re: Comcast Bandwidth Exceeded Notice!!!

They say you exceeded the acceptable amount of bandwidth but don't state what that is? If they are going to do this kind of crap then they could at least have an official amount.

Making it dependent on neighborhood usage really pits one neighbor against the other!

I know, they should've told an official amount, but I guess it would range from a monthly basis, since they do averages.

Excellent commercial...make you think about dsl...with some improvements and tech moving foward we could see faster dsl service and cheaper in the future...cable is gonna have to stick with the program and lower those stupid $99 dollar price tags on 3 megs down. Comcast defines dsl as NOT SHARING THE LINE BUT SHARING BANDWITH ONCE IT REACHES THE CENTRAL OFFICE...[CANT QUOTE COMPLETELY]..IN OTHER WORDS ONCE YOU GET YOUR ARSE THERE U HAVE TO FIGHT WITH OTHER USERS FOR BANDIWITH....

-----------------------------------------------------------
DSL services dedicate a line from your home to the provider's central office, but that is where the dedicated connection ends and the bandwidth sharing begins. Internet traffic from your neighborhood meets at the provider's central office. Customers then battle for a connection to a Local ISP that is shared by residential users and possibly businesses.

I guess I'm lucky... I had flawless DSL service with Verizon.. but I decided to give Adelphia a chance with their 2000/256 connection... and it was flawless.... so I gave em a chance on their 3000/384 connection... and I'm so happy... It's only 85 a month with the modem rental.... I don't have any problems with Web Hogs right now, and hopefully I never will. Check out this speed test:
