As of 7/14/07, I'm now receiving Upload PowerBoost.

Switched over to a Motorola SB5101 modem for testing.

My account was transitioned on 10/6/2006.
Finally Email migration on 11/13
I had Adelphia's 6000/768 tier which was provisioned at 7235/926.
Comcast's 6000/768 tier is provisioned at 6600/768.
I did have QAM64 on my upload, but it has been dropped to QAM16.
Upstream signal level is a bit higher since the transition.
Connection is good, latency is excellent & speeds are better for download.
I have "PowerBoost" implemented in my area and see speeds such as: 16768 kb/s 718 kb/s
My average speeds without PowerBoost are: 8764 kb/s 715 kb/s
We had 16/2 service here with Adelphia, but Comcast is having problems with their config file for 16/2 at the present.
My network consists of a Linksys BEFCMU10 v4 & a WRT54G v4. I use wired & wireless. All my "G" devices obtain the same speeds as the wired PCs.
