Re: Speed upgrade

If you called and upgraded to "Ultra" (22/5) then yes. There is no free upgrade to Ultra.

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.
I got the free upgrade! and also got a letter..
I went to the local comcast office and picked up a 3.0 modem

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.

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.
