Re: Speed upgrade

Yeah but I should be automatically upgraded from 16/2 to 30/5 right?
If you called and upgraded to "Ultra" (22/5) then yes. There is no free upgrade to Ultra.

Are you certain that this is so for all market areas ??

(All Comcast speed tiers come with a 250GB monthly cap) unless you order the business tier. Which I believe is only 16/2
I don't think that's true. Several people in Chicago have reported that they got the upgrade to Ultra for free (I think someone may have even posted the letter they received.)

I find that hard to believe. That Comcast would give Blast users a "free" upgrade to 22/5.

But I guess I could be wrong..Comcast acts in strange ways across their service areas.

Not all markets appear to charge/act the same, if I remember correctly, some markets were being charged a higher rate for Blast initially which may account for the "free" upgrade. Not fact based, just my opinion based on reading posts.

I don't really see that as a free upgrade since it appears to me you are paying about what I would pay if I upgrade my 16/2 ($52.95) connection to 22/5 ($62.95+$3 modem rental.)

From what you said here, you seem to be paying $61.95 for Ultra and, my assumption, since you didn't say, is that you also pay $3/mo. for the modem lease.

The same offer is available here.
If you read the terms (or even the Op's posts), it is for existing customers of CATV or CDV and the $65= cost is listed as a "starter" rate (promo?) but I don't see a normal rate, it says call for details.
I don't think the letter is a special offer as much as it is an ad.

I don't really see that as a free upgrade since it appears to me you are paying about what I would pay if I upgrade my 16/2 ($52.95) connection to 12/5 ($62.95+$3 modem rental.)

From what you said here, you seem to be paying $61.95 for Ultra and, my assumption, since you didn't say, is that you also pay $3/mo. for the modem lease.
True, i am paying $62.95 + 3.00 modem( but on a promo for 45.00 ) a month for 6 months

But I thought ultra should be 74.95 a month.
