Thanks for the pointers Ron. Is it possible that there is a throttling issue when the whole town is Zooming around at once?

Internet can slow down in your neighborhood when everybody is watching Netflix at the same time. That said, I simply do not trust Comcast and wonder whether they are throttling people. The mere fact that your download speed is about 10 times faster than your upload speed assumes that we should all be passive consumers of the internet and not contributors to the internet. For years many people have argued that our upload speeds should be just as fast as alright download speeds. That would promote democracy.
