Maybe it just depends on the area I have had Comcast Business Class at my residences through the past 7 years with no problems at all.  Infact my current connection has almost a better uptime than our t1's at our office.  Connected (165d 13h 29m 37s) with 16/2 minimum speed.  I personally would use Comcast over Global Crossing based on personal experience :P  Ive got a /29 awesome reliability and the name of my business rep who I can call when I need something.  $99 a month doesn't seem bad for that.

I can't even get reliable home cable internet service from them. No way
I would ever consider using them for transit. I would only consider a
stub peer with them to help out the poor Comcast customers who are also
trying to get to my data centers.
