Nothing beneficial to the consumer? Because a %40 increase in speed for the same cost is not beneficial? That's like buying a gallon of gas for $3, them offering you an extra couple of quarts, free of cost, and you saying, "Nah, I don't need it, I'm just going down the road".
If you don't "Need" the speed, why not go back to a dial up modem? I've got one just hanging around some where if you want it. Was the bump from 56k to 128k DSL to much? Web pages were very basic text and lite graphics, and back in the day, 128k was plenty of speed, right? But as we've gained more speed, they've loaded up web pages with more stuff, they're more appealing looking, and higher resolution pictures.
We're bottlenecked at every turn by the bandwidth provided by ISPs. If we all had a 1gig connection, imagine the things game developers could do with online play. Imagine that you could sync your favorite tunes from your computer, to your tablet or phone, from miles away, instantly.
Re: When will Colorado have the new speeds?
said by When :I'm curious for Utah as well, since we are just right next door. Every time I've called into Comcast about it, the agents had no clue what I was talking about.
If any one knows on when will Colorado have the new faster speeds please inform us here as Comcast customer service is oblivious of the new speeds.
