Confirmed. Plus, we're getting "PowerBoost."Ultra Plan Speeds: Downstream
12.0 mb - Extended Speed
6.0 mb - Standard Speed Upstream Speeds
1.5 mb - Extended Speed
750 kb - Standard Speed Threshold Limits: Downstream:
11,000 MB usage before Standard Speeds are invoked Upstream:
1,380 MB usage before Standard Speeds are invoked New Feature!
-The Ultra plan will come with a new feature called PowerBoost®!
-This feature allows a Subscriber to use as much bandwidth (Speed) as is
available, at that specific time, for the first 20 MB of a single file
download or the first 10 MB of a single file Upload. Once the total amount
has been reached (20 MB Down or 10 MB Up), their speed of service will
return to the specified Extended Speed (12.0 mb Down and 1.5 mb Up) for the
completion of that upload and/or download.
-Starting a new download or upload repeats the above stated process.
Running multiple download
and upload sessions at the same time will share the 20 MB / 10 MB limits
across all sessions.
-PowerBoost® only operates during Extended speeds. Once the threshold limits
have been reached, and the subscriber has been set to Standard speeds,
PowerBoost® will no longer be in effect.
-PowerBoost® is a registered trademark of Comcast Corporation. -Analogy:
Think of it as having the capability of a 200 mph
turbocharge burst, from a special fuel tank in your car, which lasts for up
to 1 mile. Once you take that burst of speed, you must travel another 5
miles before the special fuel tank is full again. If there is another car
500 yards ahead of you, you cant take full advantage of your turbocharge
past that 500 yards (as there is traffic in the way that slows you down). If
there is a complete traffic jam, youre not even moving the speed limit and
get no advantage from the turbocharge.--
