yeah, seriously that speed is impossible unless its T3, lol, that would be cool if Comcasts speed did go that high.

And I have a qeustion. All you ppl that have Comcast do u all use their router or your own, because I use the motorolla that they gave me.

Comcast have a big problems with the new upgrade speed. just take a look here http://www.dslreports.com/forum/remark,13066202

or Comcast forum http://forums.Comcast.net/forum.jspa?forumID=29

I am lucky to get all my speed,

Yeah, one of the main issues is the modem.  I know of two that are not compatible with the new speed increases.  One was the Motorola Surfboard 3100, and I can't remember off the top of my head the other one.  Next time I run into one, I can check with one of the support guys we have in house.  I'm not going to be quite sure if in other market areas there are going to be more on the list.

I had same issues with speed too.  Mine turned out to be the router.  I recently picked up Netgar's WGT624 v2.  Talk about a mess with that one.  My other router from Netgear RP614 v2 held up ok with speeds until multiple pc's started accessing the net, then it dropped down to nothing.  I ended up buying Linksys's WRT54GS,  Been mixed reviews but I'm pushing over my max speeds, ave this morning 7.4 MB down.  The nearest node that services my neighborhood is only 50 feet away.  Although it has been mentioned that the distance from the node for cable internet isn't a factor like dsl, but I still have my doubts on that.  I don't have anybody around here that I can compair speeds with, that is at least on the speed tier here.  Most just have the standard package 4000/384.
