I never had an issue with Comcast speed here, but I live on the far edge of town in a town of about 180k people, so I don't think I'm really sharing with a lot of people The problems I always had with them were reliability -- and those problems were severe. I'm talking randomly dropping connection every 20 seconds to every 3 hours for intervals of 5 seconds to 40 minutes. I remember having lots of issues like trying to play WoW while getting disconnected every 15 seconds for 20 seconds a pop. In the past two years, though, I haven't had many issues, but those first five years were terrible.

I'm still dropping them like a rock if I can get something comparable where I live just because of those first years I had them.

Well sure, exactly...it's because they oversubscribe. But they don't oversubscribe blindly, they have years and years of data to tell them exactly how far they can oversubscribe with a certain set of hardware in the data center. This is actually a very common business practice...airlines and hotels are well known to overbook, for example, because they know that statistically not everyone who books actually shows up.

The problem here is that Netflix is turning their statistical models on their ear and disrupting their business model. If you can support 1000 customers pre-Netflix, and suddenly Netflix comes along and your pipes get clogged at only 750 users, suddenly you have to spend more money just to stay afloat, improving Netflix's bottom line while effectively going backwards yourself!

To be clear, I'm just laying out the reality of the networks' argument. I adamantly do not agree with their proposed solutions of charging more for specific content. Any network provider/ISP that did NOT see this day of streaming video coming years ago is blind, stupid, and deserves a whack on the head with the Obvious Stick. Don't whine to us about it now, ya smacktards. Net neutrality is critical for consumers exactly because of nonsense like this, and it saddens me that so many people have been FUD'ed into thing it's somehow a "bad thing" because the evil guv'mnt is involved.

Rogers is able to push 3 mbit average is kind of useless... We have caps here at 80 GB for 25 mbit or something ridiculous.

Exactly my question.
Depending on the codec of choice, it is between 2 to 10 Mbps from what I have seen.

Interestingly, the 2kb/s throughput we are seeing here is only 335 kB/s, or about a third o a megabyte. Quite interesting, in my opinion.

I'm color blind and utterly fail to differentiate whose who from the chart.

I'm on 15/3 through comcast here in Tennessee. I have no issues at all with them and Netflix plays flawless even on their highest quality HD movies. Never buffers, except for the first couple seconds when it starts of course. I can see why they are number two. I don't live in a highly populated area either though, so that probably makes a pretty big difference.

Worst part is, Clearwire actually locks you into a 2 year contract that auto-renews for another 2 years if you don't call up in the 30 day period just before the first contract expires. When I found that out, I contacted the BBB and demanded I be released from the contract.

I love Comcast. Always get above-advertised speeds where I am at. Always.


I think it's because Verizon also does wireless connections through their 3G/4G (?) network. Averaged out, the FIOS and the wireless, it's in the middle.
More likely, its Verizon's DSL service that is bringing it down.
