Something tells me you don't get a 6mb download speed per second....that's what Comcast claims they give you, but it's capped at max it's like.... 800kbs, and that was from a server here in Atlanta, where I live

In your area, its probably capped at that speed, here in California it is advertised at 6Mbps and I get 6Mbps.

I check my connections on a weekly basis at DSLreports.com and they are pretty consistent and most of the time it exceeds 6Mbps. Trust me, I pay $42/mo for a 6Mbps... I will get 6Mbps. I can always switch to the NEW AT&T Elite which gives you anywhere from 3-6Mbps down but not sure how consistent they are compared to Comcast.  But sorry to hear Comcast screws you over there in Atlanta.


Really pricey... my father got us a good deal it's about $60 a month for, Cable Internet, HD\Satelite TV, and a bunch of those HBO and FX added shows..and yeah T-1 isn't really that great, at my college we have a t-1 AND a t-3... the when I'm on the T-3 I can actually watch DailyEpisodes and they don't skip and go like they do on the T-3.. most likely because not as many people are on it, but still.

There's a big difference between bits and bytes.....they tell you you will get a 6 megabit connection, which confuses a lot of people.  6 megabits sounds about right, what you do is 6 megabits = 6000 kilobits (technically 6144)....you take 6144/8, which is equal to 768 kilobytes...so really if you max out at 800kBs, you're actually for sure maxing out your connection.  a 350kbs will give you a upload speed of about 40kBs.  OMG COMCAST IS FOR SURE STEALING YOUR INTERNET, THEY ALWAYS LIE LOL.

To clarify, there are 8 bits to a byte. Hence, 6144 kilobits divided by 8 equals your kilobyte number. The number you see in the download box (save target as) is always* in kilobytes.

If you test at Speakeasy, the big number is your kilobit download/upload and at the bottom of the screen it tells what your kilobyte download/upload is.
