HD Netflix can use up to 3GB/hr check your account settings to manage the max quality level.

20mbps is high to me. A cartoon on netflix shouldn't do the connection in that easily. And its not my account.

20mbps = 2.5MBps = 150MBpm = 9GBph

Comcast. Getting 30mbps when no one is using netflix. But when they do it slows down and anything else becomes sluggish including browsing.

It's possibly your wireless router.

Or it could be that Comcast is throttling because they do not like it when you use Netflix instead of their cable service.

It's cable. If a lot of people are on the cable network. It will slow down to a crawl. Plus it is comcast. They are probably throttling your speed during high usage times. Which would be around 7pm-11pm. 10Mbps should be able to handle 1080p... Also all internet companies promised speed is up to X amount of Mbps. So they don't have to give you 20 Mbps. It is just possible.

Netflix just started to offer 1080p for some streams. Netflix actually has offered all ISP to use there network. So the ISP networks don't get bogged down. I know Time Warner turned it down and I imagine Comcast did too.
