    Thumbs down Sounding off! ComCrap what criminals!!!

    Where to begin?
    I won't lead the witness but if you know who the subject line refers too and for example, your ISP speed sucks and you by chance used a utility to check your speed and found it was ahhhhhh, lets say 70 to 80% lower than what you PAY FOR..... Keep reading!

    - ya, I swear there was a period in there somewhere....

    I bought a new modem, couldn't talk to a real person, went through several iterations of "can I".... which finally lead to a Text conversation whereby our new modem was reset several times which disabled its Wifi ability in spite of it being 100% compatible, well any way... after the Xfinity/comcast tech ran out of time to solve the new install I opted to Install the old modem.
    Guess what? The defective modem they said needed replacing - well it went from 3.5mbs to 70mbps.

    So if #comcast or #Xfinity are #throttling back your throughput, have them reset your modem before you buy a new one! Try speakeasy.net for speed testing before and after.
    Unbelievable! 3 of us went from <10mbps to over 70mbps without a new #cable modem which they said needed replaced. Mind you NONE of us get the #150mbps we pay for or even close to that!!!



    MAKE YOU ISP ACCOUNTABLE!!!!

    Re: Sounding off! ComCrap what criminals!!!

    I recently had the wireless modem drop off from 20 to under 1. It happened two days in a row, a re-set would fix it. (Speed to the hardwired puter was fine)

    I called CL and they replaced the modem with a new updated unit. Guess your old one has to break before you get the latest equipment.

    Anyway, I pay for 10, BUT get over 20 (long story), slightly more when the snowbirds leave (less internet traffic I guess).

    Yes, as soon as you use our equipment, which didn't work. Then return mine to service after resetting it and oh, it didn't need replaced after all.

    48.2 download and 11.7 upload from a laptop over the air. I was seeing 57 plus a while ago.

    Much faster on the wire...
