it depends on your location as to what services are available. I would say comcast would be the fastest in your area with out spending alot of money for T1 which might be faster. See if your provider offers a "boost" service (what its called in my area) for added bandwidth for an additional fee.
Actually, unlike DSL, it doesn't matter WHERE you are, just WHEN you are on. If you get on the net when a lot of people around you are on at the same time, your speeds will slow down. I have comcast as well, and I just pay the extra $10 a month charge for 8 down and 756k up. It really does make a difference.

<div style="font-style:italic;">Doing what with my modem?????</div>
There are people that "hack" their modems.. basically to get free internet, which he is stating is illegal.
well lets just say that your cable line goes into a fiber optic center where it has lots of useable bandwidth goodness <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /> you uncap the modem settings and zip zip zip you get BW galore, until the FBI knocks on your door to haul you off to jail.
