Dramatice decrease in dowmnoad speeds in zip 32162 - The Villages, Florida

Over the past 3 days, download speed has dropped consistently to about 1 mbps, rather than 5-6.  Have tried several speed test sites (DSL Reports, Verizon, etc.).  Support has not been much help - says there are no reported problems.  Have tried all the usual - reboot, cald start of modem, etc.  Have been connected for over 2 years without a similar situation.
 
- Has anyone else experienced a similar problem in my area?
- Does Comcast have a speed test site?
- Any suggestions how to get help from Comcast?
- Any other ideas?
 
Thanks

I am having the same problem in Fort Lauderdale Florida.
 
Upload speed is fine. The download speed is terrible. Also not getting any help from customer service.
