I use cable too. I used to use 12 megs what a waste of money that was! I saw no issues yesterday so this is why im confused but it must be the servers. I just started playing cod bo about a week ago. Took me a while to get to liking it but now Im getting addicted!

I'd buy 12m in a heartbeat if I could.
4.5 mbps DSL that throttles down to 1.5 at night isn't cutting it mang.

Doesn't really make a difference if you aren't transferring a lot of files, though.

If you downgrade on Comcast to 3MB

Please switch to DSL -- Comcast is terrible, traffic routing, throttling of net etc etc.

I get better pings with DSL on 768K than I do with a 10MB connection on Comcast just because of the routing

Just make sure they disable interleaving if you want the best connection as far as latency is concerned. Our Verizon was ~35ms to the first hop (LEC) in our town. Once we got them to turn that crap off, first hop (which affects latency across the board) went down to ~10-11.

Keep in mind support generally has no idea what 'fastpath' is, if you ever take this route..

i Need a land line and I dont have one so it would cost me more in the long run to get the dsl. Again I had issues today with the connection during gaming. It only happens when I game and not all of the time. I checked in my home and no one was on a pc so I cant pin point it yet.

You don't have to have a landline for DSL. Check Speakeasy, years ago I used to have them for a 6MB DSL and I refused to have a landline. Granted their service is not in every area. Downgrading service is not going to get your a more stable connection, if someone is telling you that they are full of **** and have no clue what the hell they are talking about. If your seeing degraded service when gaming make sure it's the actual service and not the Gaming Server you log into that is having the issues.

I wanted to update the thread and I want to add taht I did go back to 12megs and my problems are gone. 3 megs runs my games but does run into problems that are so bad sometimes I had to power cycle my modem. Since I went back to 12megs the probs are gone so to all who run 3 megs with comcast and never have issues you are lucky. Game on and have fun!

Provider probably gave you those problems so you would revert back and they get more of your money.

3MB is perfect. I use it. I can download something on steam at like 1.4mb and still watch a movie on netflix on HD, and play games lag free.

Sufficient, yes. I've been using 2MB for as long as I remember and I get ~50 ping, which is standard.
