Its very rarily this slow, but Comcast has been having problems the past few days, it was out for a few hours the other day and it doesn't look like they have it all cleared upOriginally posted by: Angrymarshmello
Hmm, that does blow. What are your typical download speeds? (Go to microsoft.com and download something) If your average download speed is 10% of what you're supposed to have, that's great. (I have 1.5/128 and I download around 150kb/sec depending on server) I don't know why the hell it would be that low though. Are your phone lines old, and how far away are you from the telephone office?

Taken from Renob's - he's not talking about the transfer rate - he's talking about the overall speed. (I think)2003-07-07 21:02:19 EST: 1776 / 364
Your download speed : 1776120 bps, or 1776 kbps.
A 216.8 KB/sec transfer rate.
Your upload speed : 364342 bps, or 364 kbps.
Seems like broadband .. above the 1mbit barrier!
Do the Tweak Test at dslreports.com. Chances are you'll have to adjust your RWIN, TTL, MTU, etc.
