Comcast Speeds ONLY!!!!!!

Recommended Posts

That is the same exact modem I had. The tech guy did some speed tests and said it was ridiculous that I was getting the speeds I was getting so he gave me a new modem...only it didn't get much better until he played around with the outside connections. so far this modem i have now the Terayon TJ 715x seems to be working alright

HEY MAN ^^^ UP THERE!!!

WTF!!

It looks as though your modem never recieved the bootfile indicating your speed tier!!!

your still using the bootfile indicating 4/378 or whatever...

I'd call tech, as them to send a new bootfile to your modem, since you've upgraded

to 6/768, and that' you're still getting the basic speeds...

WOW

i'd be irrate if that's been going on long.

I worked many years in a call center as a product specialist for one of ComCasts local competitors (although adsl), from that i've learned if YOU aren't persistent, Comcast WON'T be either.

MY ONLY problem with comcast is the lack of uniformity, and preciseness from their tech's...

Instead of trouble shooting a network card, they send a truck..

Instead of directing you to appropriate USB drivers if needed for their modems,

they send a truck.

Instead of ASKING your name, telephone number, and address so they can identify you,

YOU HAVE TO TELL THEM???!!!!??!!! wtf...

Instead of KEEPING NOTES ON YOUR ACCOUNT, which the call center for the ISP I worked for woud FIRE YOU for touching an account, without leaving detailed notes on the call,

you just ASSUME they know you've called before.

WOW,

cmon ComCast, either get a SVAR Or get your proverbial sh!t together and train your tech's.

good luck bro', and i would dial 1-800-Comcast as soon as i READ this, and read it back to themHHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

On the phone with a tech right now he said it doesnt look like the modem upgraded itself so he is going to see what he can do.  It has only been going on for about 2 or 3 days, so its not really a big deal, and I have my neighborhood rep coming out tomorrow with a surfboard modem so I can get rid of this pos RCA modem.

Thanks for the suggestions.
