    I have broadband thru Comcast and I have been very satisfied with
    it over the last seven months. About two weeks ago I noticed that
    no matter what website I go to there is roughly a 15 to 20 second
    pause before it downloads the page. When it downloads, everything is fine
    even streaming video, but click on another link and once again it pauses
    then downloads. I contacted Comcast and they said it must be my computer.
    I question that because it does it using both Safari and Firefox and with some of the widgets. I have only one computer so I'm not able to mimic the problem. Any suggestions?

    MacIntel 17" 1.83 Ghz - Version 10.4.8 - Updates are current.

    Test your upload & download speed using Broadband Reports. (Select the closest server with the lowest load.)

    It will compare your results to other Comcast Customers' using the graph at the bottom.

    Great website - My results were 33% worse to 37% better depending
    on the server.
