Comcast is my cable broadband provider. Looks as if they're having a major outage in my area. My network connectivity has been flaky all week, and for the past three days the situation has been enarly intolerable. I've called a couple of times and get recorded messages acknowledging the problems, and basically telling me the queue is so long there's no point hanging around on the phone.
I suppose these things happen, but when the Internet is your main supply line, it really bites, especially when they take an age to fix things.
