  1. Comcast/Xfinity - paying for 200 Mbps running Linux Lite 3.8 A "refurbished PC" purchased from Micro Center - $219.97 / i5-quad, 250 PNY SSD - $67.99 Linux Lite optimized - "Great Results" This customer should be VERY PLEASED 8
  2. No complaints here - Comcast/Xfinity - St. Paul, MN - Rock-N-Roll
  3. Comcast 105 Extreme ($150.00 Internet only) Running fairly good today ...
  4. I've been watching threads regarding Comcast and the reason most will no longer post, complain and certainly NEVER expect to receive anything close to what they pay for is; There's isn't a DAMN thing that will EVER change. I heard a Stat the other day (unverified), that Comcast is now in control of over 60% of the Bandwidth accross North America. I can't understand how it is they're not considered a monopoly when they are REALLY are the only high speed access in so many areas. Sure, we could connect with Dial Up, or some funky limited DSL (I can only get a 1.2mb DSL here in St. Paul, MN),
  5. Today is a good day @ Camcast - few and far between lately ...

  6. I feel your Pain. Comcast in the Midwest (even West St. Paul) is not always so good. Believe it or not, sometimes my data flow is actually routed through the Chicago area. I pay for a 50/5 service That's supposed to be 50Meg down & 5 Meg up. See BEST test result EVER in Sig. I can't tell you how many techs I have had out over the last 6 years. They're the only game in town here, even though I live in a suburb of St. Paul. What are you going to do ??? If you'd like, I can explain what I've learned through these times that may actually help your talks with support to at least ge
  7. Looks Good doesn't it? Only thing is with Comcast - I pay for 50Meg down - 5 Meg up ($150+ a month) This is one the highest tests ever. Service is EXTREMELY inconsistent sometimes get 18Meg down 300k up (Looks like a 256k DSL) Comcast - Quick to Install / Quick to Disconnect / Service Calls ?? Hummm Not so much ... Takes Comcast a week or more for service and always have to show a weeks worth of results.
  8. All the advice given you here has been excellent. Once you determine exactly what you need I would also suggest you checkout http://5dollarhosting.com/ I have purchased a Reseller account and I can tell for my needs they fit like a glove and they're very reasonably priced. If all you need is a place for 1 site $5 a month - no kidding and it'll run great. The SimplePlan
