Well, the speed here is great, but they have opened up the network a bit, to try and hold on to customers from Verizon's fiber to the house FiOS offering.

The day I can get FiOS is the day I dump Comcast Cable Modem service... The speed is good, but I am lucky and live in a very uncongested area, so there aren't many users on my cable segment sharing the bandwidth...

I'm downloading Fedora FC4 CD .isos at 197 KB/sec - that's big "B", as in about 1.6 Meg bits/second... And I think it could go faster, if the source could serve it up faster ;^)
