**** comcast yo... I pay for 50 mbps I get at most 1MB per second at any time of day. I am currently compiling data on them to sue them for charging me for speeds I never get even close to.

1mps? I'm lucky if I get 50 Kbps.

Furthermore, in their contract it says UP TO 50 Mbps, meaning that you can reach that amount but if you don't, not their problem. Trust me, you'll never see a cent because they deal with ******* like you ever day.

Are you sure you know the difference between megabits and megabytes? A 50 megabit connection will get you a maximum down speed of about 6.25 Megabytes/s (in prefect conditions).... But what's your line sync at? How far are you from the exchange? If your line sync is good, then have you tried connecting to your modem via ethernet to see if Wi-Fi was your bottleneck?

I only say this because you'd look like a ******* idiot if you hadn't checked all this correctly...

While you're pretty much correct,i 'd just like to add something to your explanation:

Most ISP's only deliver "up to" the chosen speed. This meaning a 50mbps connection might only get 10mbps, because they are only delivering speeds that might get close to the 50mbps.
