  1. No. When I was on their 12Mbps tier, I got only ~15Mbps at Speedtest. So when I upgraded to their 20Mbps tier, I *FELT* the difference in terms of near-instantaneous web page loads, a subjective improvement. And Speedtest numbers went up to around ~30Mbps to reflect the change. TestMy went from around ~3Mbps in my old tier at Comcast (unfortunately I didn't testmy as much in that tier) to now around ~6Mbps and ~7Mbps. Actually, just now I tested here at TestMy and got just 3.8Mbps download. Maybe TestMy was always around 3Mbps regardless of improvement? Speedtest right now is 23
  2. Okay, in real world experience, I am only enjoying a huge boost coming from their lower-tiered service (Comcast's 6 to 12Mbps) to what they call the 20Mbps tier, which tests out to be a consistent ~30Mbps at Speedtest, same at Comcast's own "bogus" test site, 7Mbps at Comcast's "super bogus" test site (delete your cookies after several runs), and here. All numbers are downloads. I'm getting near-instantaneous web page loads. This is regardless of website location and time of day, whereas previously I had some lag at peak hours. So I'm *FEELING* like I'm now FAST. But also, as CA3LE pointe
  3. Here's what I did to get SpeedTest scores consistent with TestMy scores. I simply picked a test server WAY ACROSS THE OTHER SIDE OF THE UNITED STATES. I'm in the San Francisco bay area. I simply go to SpeedTest, zoom out, pick Boston or Miami. And my scores will be roughly inline with TestMy scores when averaged for both download and upload. The DOWNLOAD score is dependent on distant of test server. So to match, you simply TEST THE ENTIRE INFRASTRUCTURE NETWORK across the country. Scores vary by time of day and day of week. Mine at SpeedTest nearest server (default ping) ~30Mbps. Tes
  4. This Ubee DDM3513 is apparently a DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem. I have not unpacked it. I did not request it. But it came in a nice box from Comcast. They know I own my own Motorola SB5101, which I understand is not DOCSIS 3.0. This follows an upgrade in service to their 20Mbps tier (from many years of same service at around 12 and 6Mbps). So I'm wondering, is this modem as good as the Motorola SB6120? I also have that here sitting unpacked! The reason I haven't unpacked them (and installed them to test) is because I was told by many technicians (both in Comcast and elsewhere) that a DOCSI
  5. Here's something ridiculous I found while browsing Comcast's offers. It's a test site that actually gives you a MUCH LOWER score, but it also has a link redirecting you to another test site of theirs assuming that existing customers don't see any difference. I've been a Comcast customer subscriber for many years. It's a love-hate relationship. http://business.comcast.com/internet/speed-comparison.aspx#speedTest My results: 4.23Mbps Download 2.45 Mbps Upload Compare to their "existing subscriber" test site: 28.80 Mbps Download 4.11 Mbps Upload Which is very similar to S
