Internet is getting faster and faster and some of you on cable or really good ADSL connections are getting some pretty incredible speeds.  I'm stuck out here on rural wireless internet at 1Mb/512Kb and that's my best choice.  After seeing a commercial like this, I wish I had Comcast. . .


Yes I know what you mean.... very little speed and "they" have increased their cost, in result of fuel and operating costs.... I have sent a letter to "them" about this.... lol great video only if....

Remember kids, if you happen to find yourself upside down and on fire, you've just discovered the meaning of "too fast".

You don't want Comcast, you want Shaw!

We have powerboost as well, all it does is uncap your connection for the first 15 secs of any download. The newsgroup download client I use "breaks" powerboost, and gives me permanent uncapped speeds.

I usually see anywhere from 2MB/s to 3MB/s depending on the time of day.
