HOLY FCUKING SIHT!!! Dude!!! That is absolutely outrageous!!! I would be calling them at least 25 times a day and angrily complaining, and getting all my friends who use them to do so as well!!! :swearing::swearing:

That is quite possibly the largest load of rancid goat feces I have ever heard!!!

You are paying $160 USD a month only to have your download speeds capped at 256KB/s for a large portion of the day?!!!!! :swearing: Makes me want to strangle small kittens just to think about it!!!

And I thought comcast was awful. I pay $80 USD a month for their service and I generally get 1-2.5MB/s download speeds as long as the download server is up to the task.

Call them and complain many times a day, and tell your friends to do so as well, and tell them to tell their friends too.
