I want to know if this is because of my ISP or if it is due to heavy traffic or bandwidth restrictions. It was faster on Mint 9 XFCE but even that began to slow down before I made the upgrade to Debian. I suspect it is Comcast but I want to know if this is a common issue before I make the phone call. Thanks.

You might want to take a look at apt-fast, which is a script to download files in multiple threads from the same server. I find that for some reason, though, the last portion stalls so long that there is no net gain. When getting updates I do see that some servers are much faster than others. I think it depends on the speed of the server, how many connections it has, among other things.
