Re: [Speed] 12/2 or 16/2..what is Comcast smoking? Seriously..

said by pandora:

People were happy to pay an extra $10 for an extra 2MB of download speed. Now they pay the same for twice as much and suddenly it isn't good enough.
Many/most people were paying $10 extra for double the upload speed. Now they're paying $10 extra for... not much. Already downgraded from 16/2 to 12/2 here, couldn't be happier.

I'm still happy with 6 / 1. 12 / 2 will be nice, but it my current Internet speed is sufficient.

Comcast has been pretty decent about this. Doubling speed and not really increasing costs. As you point out, many will get the same speed but save a bit.

I'm a satisfied Comcast HSI customer.

That is all I wanted when I first started paying the $10 extra - back when it(upload) was 384k vs 256k.

When 6/1 gets kicked to 12/2, I'll be dropping back as well.

I can save the $10 per month for a D3 modem - if they ever sell them.
