Tweets Sent to Comcast for Low ISPs

Bad ISPs?  Take it to Twitter

We’ve all heard the saying “you get what you pay for”, but why is this not the case when it comes to our internet speeds?  One Comcast customer is no longer sitting quiet with the issue.  They use an ISP test function to check their speeds regularly, and if they are lower than what they are paying for an automatic tweet is published tagging Comcast with the current speed they are receiving, along with the question why it’s lower when they pay for a much higher speed.  The customer has went on to share their source code for this automatic tweeting function.  You can find this source code here, and click here for a free ISP test.

  1. We’re having the same problem with the WOW! Internet service. One of their technicians is coming to the house tomorrow to troubleshoot and hopefully resolve the issue. What makes this even more interesting is that WOW! snail-mailed a letter to us several months ago boasting that they were doubling our download speed from 30-to-60Mbps at no additional charge. My speed tests average around 10. I’d have been very happy just to get the 30 we’re paying for…

  2. Arizona Marek misspells no words, and uses proper capitalization and punctuation marks…NOT!!! If you live in a glass house…

  3. as if your grammar is perfectly immaculat? when it becomes so, then you can start cutting others down for their gramatical errors. get over yourself and get off that pedistal you've decided to sit up on. yes, i did mean "up on", as in you elevating yourself above everyone else and thinking you're worthy enough to correct others.

    don't bother replying, i've marked your worthless comment as spam and won't recieve any intelligent replies your ego may decide to retort with.
