Why can't Comcast run DNS servers?

Comcast may be able to run a cable business, but when it comes to running DNS servers, they're less than competent. According to Broadband Reports, Comcast customers have been complaining that because of Comcast DNS woes, they're unable to surf the Web.

This isn't the first time this happened. Two years ago, Comcast proved incapable of running its DNS servers, and many people, including me, couldn't get to Web sites.

I learned from the past, and so this time around, I surf the Web without any problems, even with Comcast's DNS woes. That's because I don't use Comcast's DNS servers. Instead, I use a great free DNS service so Comcast DNS incompetence should never affect me again. If you'd like to find out how to use the service, check out my article, Hack DNS for lightning-fast Web browsing.

If you're a Comcast customer having problems, I suggest following my advice. You won't be bedeviled by Comcast DNS incompetence again.
