I feel like Comcast is ripping me off:

I'm paying for Gigabit internet. I'm shelling out to Comcast for their Xfinity Gigabit internet, but I never see the speeds I'm paying for. My speeds are comparable to my grandmother's 200mb plan, where I get download speeds of 50-60 megabytes/s. So why am I paying for a 1000mb plan, only to receive the exact same 50-60 megabytes/s I get with AT&T's Fiber? I've tried to talk to "chat agents" about this a few times since I realized it, and all I ever get is a "give your modem the ol' 'off and on'again'" and a pat on the back. I'm furious. I know the limits of my devices, I know what I'm paying for, and I know what I'm not getting. I want to know why, and how it's going to be fixed, or I'm finding someone else to take my money and support

You could start by posting pertinent information like modem/router model, how you’re testing the speeds etc.
