Is the 60 mb plan worth the extra $10?

That depends on what you do with your Internet connection.  If you download a lot of large files, then you will most definitely notice the diff.  But if you just use the Internet for browsing and email or whatever, there's no point in upgrading.  Basically, if you find yourself saying: "man, I wish this download would be done already," then upgrade.  If not, then don't.  :D

that is very true. upgrade ONLY if you play online games (xbox, ps2) so the games wont lag.  also it is 6Mb/768kb Plan not 60Mb

Thank you! Umm lets see, all i did was read up on some forums and used adaware and spybot, then i forwarded ports and then it just got faster. Is the 60 mb plan worth the extra $10?

Before anyone starts any rumors, I think he means the 6Mb plan ;)

hi everyone. im Joe in Jersey ..

I've been a Comcast subscriber for like 4 years now. I've been having trouble uploading lately. If I go through FTP it will upload like the 10 to 20k of the file and then it will just stop and sit there until it or the server returns a timeout. This issue has been persistant for 4 days now. Normally I'm plugged into a router on a 2 computer mini-network, but since I've been having problems with the internet I've since turned off my server machine and plugged my main computer in directly for best diagnosis. I'm wondering if Comcast has imposed limitations on me because of excessive bandwidth usage? I host a small FTP / website which was running 24/7 for a good few months.

I found some details on my modem, which is an RCA made by Thomson model DCM235.
