Comcast and Net Speed Tests

Novanix Re:Giving Comcast Props (290 comments)

Actually I get really high burst speeds, but if you a long download of >10-15 seconds it will drop to your 6-8 megabits a sec rate. It confuses all the speed testers as basically any large transfer for the first so many seconds will go very fast, and its just after that the speed really drops. Best way is to just downlod a large file and see what the speeds are like 20 seconds in.
