Re: [PLUG] Comcast DNS (was Fios users)

Not sure when you last used it, but since then the platform has been modernized and is one of the better and newer platforms out there. As a company Comcast is pulling their act together on the ISP side.

In my opinion and prior experience, Comcast DNS really sucks.  I never
used it, I used either Speakeasy (when I was a customer) or OpenDNS, but
lots of my neighbors did use it and much of their "Comcast sucks"
complains where just DNS problems.  Maybe that has improved.  But I
doubt it.
