Tallahasse, FL - Speed Increases?

Recommended Posts

I am not sure about that. We have been experiencing strange speed and connectivity issues in the Tallahassee area. Lots of people reporting fast speeds in the morning, then coming to a standstill at night (8mb plans at 1mb speeds). Lots of people reporting packet loss (whom never had a problem before and no hardware/system changes at their end).

We are hoping the major degradtions in our region is due to them upgrading, but who knows.

OK here is the thing. Comcast is trying to keep up with Verizion FiOS. So the comcast customers that are in the states were FiOS is available, Comcast is going to double your speed. And no its not the power boost. Comcast is trying to keep up with verizon FiOS.

Coomcast is a JOKE, their CS is horrible, their speeds are getting worse and no one at Comcast has any explanation as to why.

I agree that the customer service sucks, ok really sucks, but for the most part I always get advertised speeds.
