It's Comcastic!

When the changeover from Adelphia to Comcast occurred, I immediately noticed that an on-going issue with my e-mail (that is, not being able to access it through the POP-3 client) cleared up. It was, however, replaced by a slowness overall. Internet radio has pauses. YouTube videos have pauses. My email client doesn't connect on the first pass. A Bittorrent took four days to download.

Oh, sure, there are a few occasions when I've measured my download speed just over 2000 kbps but, for the most part, the average download speed is around 800 kbps and a typical speed is around 300 kbps. This is not their advertised 3000 kbps "Blazing Fast Speed."

I've got a new adjective for their ad men to use:

It's Craptacular.
