In case you didn't already know it, Comcast officially sucks

I understand that there are, from time to time, network issues that make it hard to deliver high-speed internet that your customers pay for.

However, this: is not acceptable. When we are *paying* to receive a service, it should arrive more or less as we've paid for it.

For those of you too lazy to click through the link, that shows our current internet speeds. We are getting a ping of about 1379 ms. And our "high-speed" is downloading at a whopping 0.24 mbps. (High speed is usually reserved for a 1mbps at least.) Ours is supposed to run at like 6 or 7. This is unacceptable.

Now is the time when I start looking to change service, because this is absolutely ridiculous.
