I signed up for the triple play from CommunistCast last year because I can't get Directv HD in my area because of some trees I can't cut down. So it's been a good 8 months with the service and I do a lot on the internet because I work as an IT guy so I'm pretty aware of my speeds on a constant basis.
About two weeks ago I notice a noticeable speed difference in the way I connected to my work and decided to do a speed test and noticed I'm about 5-7mbs which is great since I was on the 8mb plan, however, I ran the same test when I first got my setup and it was about 2-3mbs. Which even that was great because I know you usually never see the speeds they advertise. The strange part came about a week ago I get a letter in the mail from comcast. Here is the contents:
'Dear Valued Comcast Customer' (Mind you my name/address/acct is no where on this letter it is a standard bulk letter)
