Are you still on the Comcast 1Mbit/sec cheapo service? I've had
problems with that service. Until maybe a month ago, they were
sending bursts of high speed data, followed by long periods of
nothing, and then another burst. The average throughput was about
1Mbits/sec. That caused fatal problems for VoIP and streaming, so
they apparently (my guess) evened out the bursts into something that
resembles a flow. Now, VoIP and even Netflix works. I just noticed
that Comcast no longer offers their 1Mbit/sec plan.
