Erroneous Connection Factors? A Big Deal

Recommended Posts

Well i wanna discuss here about the problems that affect the speed of internet i kno that there are lots of problems but i want u ppl to tell me some of ur experiences that u faced and how u handle them. so that it can help other people too.

first when i had Comcast connection my problem was when i turn my modem on it starts and get no signal while i had to wait for hours to get online and then like when it gets online it automatically gets off again and than the problem. i did everything to overcome the problem but nothing helped me out and i had to discontinue my service but than i took the service back again after a month and than the service i have till now and i havent face any major problems yet. i think the most problem may be user facing today is WRONG INSTALLATION made by Comcast service crew people

That upload speed is noraml for u, because u have the 4mbps package, when u upgade to the 6mbps, your upload nearly doubles. thats my speed, never shanges.

yea but both the speeds are normal as according to their plans and i guess 4mbps is not bad for the typical guy like me who jus spends time on internet and play online games but i think the 6 mbps is cheaper becoz u get 2 mbps extra for $10 like $20 off on it

T1 has no custom speeds as far as i kno it only comes up with constant speed thats 1.5Mbps. the gal who was arguing with u wasnt wrong on the point that cable is slower than T1, its true or i shall say "it was true" when cable speed limits upto download 768 Mbps and i donno upload but somewhat like that so T1 was considered faster than cable and still some softwares has predescribed T1 speed faster than cable till today, but when the cable got up to 4 and 6Mbps, the T1 was considered slower than Cable. however some ppl still believes that cable is slower than T1 but IT WAS HISTORY, u r the winner in that arguement.
