I have had comcast high speed cable internet service for a few years due to lack of another comparable service in my area. I REQUIRE this high speed internet due to running a home server as well as running a small business and other misc jobs that my wife and I have.
My internet has always had problems, and no matter how many (well over 30) visits by a technician, they are unable to help, fix, or determine what the problem is. They claim I am the only one with issues. I have spent over $300 on new equipment over the last 6 months alone just in attempt to resolve my service issues. Nobody in the company seems to be able to give me even the slightest idea of what the problem is other than (maybe your equipment is bad).
Well the chances of 4 different brand and/or models of modems going bad is pretty much worse odds than winning the lottery. I would give anything to have another internet provider.
I need a minimum of 8MBS download speed to keep everything running smoothly.
The main issue I have been having with my service is that it will go out for a few seconds every 5minutes or less about 12-14hrs a day. Needless to say you cannot run a server, let alone check email with the internet spurts of 30seconds or less that rule my life.
