The Mystery of the Slow Downloads →
Cabel Sasser at Panic:
A few months ago, a complaint started popping up from users downloading or updating our apps: “Geez, your downloads are really slow!”
If you work in support, you probably have a reflexive reaction to a complaint like this. It’s vague. There’s a million possible factors. It’ll probably resolve itself by tomorrow. You hope. Boy do you hope.
Except… we also started noticing it ourselves when we were working from home. When we’d come in to the office, transfers were lightning fast. But at home, it was really, seriously getting hard to get any work done remotely at all.
So, maybe there was something screwy here?
I loved reading this blog post so much – It was like following a little detective story. Plus, it is not every day that you can read a story where Comcast comes out not looking horrible.
