    A remarkable coincidence is 12/1.5 = 8. Any chance one measurement is in
    "bits" and the other in "bytes" ?

    *******

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comcast

    "Comcast offers

    downstream speeds of up to 1.5, 3, 6, 15, 20, 25, 50 and 105 Mbit/s and
    upstream speeds of .384, .768, 1, 2, 3, 4, 10 or 20 Mbit/s for standard
    home connections.

    These differing speed options are made possible by loading a particular
    configuration file into the modem or bonding channels together through
    DOCSIS 3.0."

    If it really is 1.5 Mbit/sec, you might want to phone tech support and
    see if the configuration is set wrong.
