Re: [TWC] New Modem = Speed Capped?

Power boost is just eye candy

Agreed, it's essentially designed to cheat on speed tests.

Upstream power boost could be useful though. Remote access tends to be very "bursty". Temporary increases of bandwidth might help full screen refreshes and such.

Yeah, but the upload powerboost on comcast did wonders when i was uploading a lot of files to my webserver. Non stop 10Mb upload since each file was small enough to not stop the powerboost. I know it's cheating.. hehe
