    I have considered buying my own modem but I keep dragging my feet. We pay to "rent" the Comcast equipment every month but a good modem is pricey. I figure it's a tradeoff since if the modem craps out they will just swap it out with a new one. Also if I buy one the troubleshooting will always be on me. :D

    My son te
    My son tells me that the download speed is the most important for general net browsing or streaming. If below 5 mbps it is slow as.. good is 8mbps, 11 excellent. Just tested my speed and it is a woeful 1mbps. Since we had NBN Optical Fibre I have had nothing but net problems. I lose net connection more now than I ever did with the old ADSL format.

    A new router made all the difference in the world. Plus, I don't know if it helped but I also switched out the Ethernet cable for a cat-8 cable.

    I have no idea what my Internet download and upload speeds are, but they're more than fast enough for me even if they're the slowest you can get!
