I live in MD and have comcast@home cable, well in games my ping jumps from 70 to 2000 constantly. Unfortunatly most times its 134-240+ I understand someone can get such speed using 56K modem. My download speeds are not better, usually they 30-90kb/s. Their representative will be at my house on monday trying to do something about it, but I doubt he will be able to do anything.

Omni, your observation matches up with mine. asi stated in teh email to them, before the Home 2000 launch, they were SOLID!!! since then, they have gone the way of AOL... and i did one night question a cool @home techie about whether or not they were considering doing something about the 128 upload limitation, and he said as far as he knew..... no!!! :-(

Hey, Hells_Angel - They(FCC, IEEE) just approved the v.92 standard, which will increase UL speed on new v.92 capable modems to 48k/s, or something like that. You ought to check it out.. I think the story was on ZDNet, but I can't remember for sure.

Well my modem is capable of more. I read one place that it can handle 128k download biggrin.gif But I am satisfied now. I only get about 5k/s downloads, but last night I was pinging 125-200, so eat it up you cable junkies tongue.gif tongue.gif
