Hello, you may now embed "gifv" simply by pasting the link (same as youtube). Enjoy!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Alright, so I've had Verizon DSL for years. I've been patiently waiting for them to get FiOS in since they are putting it in my city and have been for a couple years now. I am tired of waiting, though, and my slow ass DSL speeds are no longer acceptable. I am looking at going to Comcast, but their advertised outbound speed, which is hard as hell to find in the first place, is crap... 384k? What the hell?
Now, I've got a friend who works for Comcast and does installation/in house support stuff. He doesn't know what their packages are currently, but says that he rarely sees upload speeds lower than 2Mb/s. Everything I find on the web also suggests that Comcast bumped everything up to 1Mb (and 2Mb with powerboost) or 2Mb/s outbound some time ago. Comcasts site, in the few places you can find it, still says 384k on most packages, with one package available with 768k outbound.
So, is there anyone here who actually knows what the hell the packages, specifically with outbound speeds, are? I do not want to actually call and talk to some sales rep on the phone, they probably don't know, and I don't want to talk to sales people.
