Comcast speeds real slow! How can I make it faster?
Hi, I had recently switched to Comcast Xfinity Blast internet. I ordered the service with 22 mbps. Now when I download something, it becomes a challenge for the download to get faster than 500kbps. I don't understand, It should be a lot more. If it stays at this rate, than there would be no difference between my current and previous service.

Additional Details-
I have the triple play deal.
Ubee modem
Netgear Router

Now is there anyway I can make my internet faster? I don't believe it's the computer because other computers that are connected to the router have the same problem.

Thanks in advance!
