Wonder if that means they are getting rid of the 7MB tier and replacing it with 10MB as the standard now?

Or is this just a case by case or competition perk?

I just got the same robocall 30 seconds ago and came here to scoop the news, but looks like you beat me to it. My message said it would be done "in the next few days".

I'm assuming the upstream will jump to 1 mbps. Or will it be 2 mbps? Hmmm.

So the next question is, will there be any changes to Road Runner Lite?

Got the same call.

Too bad I've already switched to FIOS because they couldn't fix the problem with modem losing connection.

Answered my own question.

Tested first, got 7/512. Power-cycled the modem and the new config has obviously been published because I then got 10/1.



It's nowhere near what I get on FIOS, but for a backup connection (which never gets used anyway) it's not too shabby.

Bright House Networks today has eliminated their 7M /512k speed and replaced it with 10m/1m service. Existing 7M/512K customers are being upgraded to 10m/1m service. Current Bright House 15/2 or 20/2 service customers are not impacted by this change and they will receive no upgrade in speed

Hopefully Central Florida will do the same thing soon. I still have 7/512.

Call and tell them that you want faster upload speed.

can't hurt to ask them can it?

How can you UP the QOS on your upload speed on the modem, are you hacking your modem?

Apparently whoever updated the website messed up. It's 10/1 for sure.

OK so? Want a cookie? If Verizon is so great they would offer Fios in my area.

What part of Wesley Chapel are you in? A buddy of mine lives in one of the subdivisions about a mile west of I-75 & 54, and it's available to him-- or at least so he claims. He called recently to ask how I liked FIOS because was considering switching. He'd called the 800 number and the rep said it was available at his address.
