Re: [Speed] Own Extreme 50, why does Comcast want $250 to "

No!

What happened before, and current transactions aren't always the same...otherwise CC would still max out at 3/768 like they did in 2003.

They could decide to add the $250 fee to EVERY new account.
But maybe through experince they found the $250 was higher than needed, or the churn rate was lower than expected, or that restriction was preventing new customers from trying it and the lost sale cost more than the lost $250 over time.

... it probably will work fine ...

And you think PROBABLY is close enough? some lawyer is drooling, hoping that some court will aggree that words like PROBABLY, UP TO, POWERBOOST etc are too vague.
So rather than most people getting a free upgrade UP TO/Nearly/almost/bursting to 105 we will all be subject to a huge fee to find the lowest common top speed and restricting EVERYONE to that.

I dont think anyone is getting the speed increase for free, I'm getting the feeling that its going to be met with a price increase I really hope I'm wrong

I think the whole reason for the home checkup is because some people's equipment can't handle the 105 speed and they want to make sure that when it is sent out that the customer actually gets that speed and isn't limited by the computer or wiring or router causing a bottleneck and an unnecessary truck roll.
