The Internet services that Comcast provides is a shared media design - the more people on your segemnt the fewer resources are available. Tryrunning a speed test to see what Comcast is providing. You can even use Comcast's own speedtest site http://speedtest.comcast.net.

It appears that Comcast is providing (at the time of the speedtest) excelent service. Can you quantify your refernce of "strength". What are you using to determine strength?
