It is about I get rid of dial-up and get something faster. My only other choice is Comcast broadband. My questions are:

1. Has any one used it and is it worth it?

2. What cable modem did you use?



I've used Motorola on three different providers and Terrayon on two, prefer the Motorola.

All these are mass-produced to a price target and have components that deal with analog and are exposed to rude spikes and such during their lifetime.

You CAN get a bad one - right out-of-the box, and the DO suffer damage and failure in use. My response has been to rent, not buy, as a replacement seems to be needed every 12-24 months where there are regular thunderstorms.

Caveat: Use some other mx for your e-mail, not comcast.

Our MX'en blacklist all of comcast, as they do nothing useful to block outbound to port 25, and are *infested* with Win-Zombies.
