I got the upgraded speeds 2 nights ago didn't even realize it but i am as happy as a pig in shit. I could care less about the download speed it's the upload that is awesome.

And speeds match up to.

Re: [Speed] Northeast speed changes coming.

What's up with the download speeds going back?

here is my recent...the only real notice I've seen since I was pushed to DOCSIS 3.0 last night and with me calling about this upgrade was a 10Mpbs increase over normal speedtests for download and my upload doubled which is nice but I want that 50/10.

Well, if your area just got Docsis 3, watch over the next few weeks, you'll get the upgrade. I've seen areas that just got D3 get the 20/4 upgrade, a week later go 25/4 and then like 2 weeks after that get whatever is most current for their level.

So watch, wait and report back. It shouldn't be long.

Same thing here...

About 2-3 days ago I was having a blast (no pun intended) downloading at 50Mbps. Noticed while trying to download anything today, my download speed is down to 30-35Mbps, but upload around 10Mbps.... very strange.

Perhaps in some areas Comcast overestimated their bandwidth capacity, and now with more higher speed users, their automated network management is kicking in?

Went back to 50mbps today. Maybe some sort of throttling? I've done about 200GB in 10 days.

You might find Comcast's explanation of their network management useful:

No. Don't count on that happening for a long time.

So does this mean that comcast is going to upgrade other areas besides the northeast?
Otherwise the new sticky is kind of pointless.

I don't know. I don't think it is pointless, however. It makes pretty clear that, so far, there is no upgrade for a lot of areas and, so far, no word that the rest of us will get that increase.

Let's keep that topic for reports from people who did get the upgrade and return this topic to general discussion of the upgrade. If anyone wants to question my decision to sticky the topic, please take it to private message.

TIA.
