What tier do you have? I haven't heard of any other reports of the speed upgrades rolling out yet.

If you would indulge those of us that are drooling and do some sustained downloads from a known fast source and do the same with the upload speeds.

I'd really like to know if the new upgrade has started to hit and what it is after Powerboost runs out. (I'm really hoping the speeds will be 55/15 as Extreme 50 is now, if not better by the time it gets to me.)

@comcast.net

I'm still on generic Blast speeds. I used to consistently pull 3.1MB/s after powerboost ran down, but lately things have been constantly fluctuating between 3.2 and 3.8. Hopefully that's a sign of things to come.

4.5 mb/s = 36mbps

Thats what you will pull at best on Blast currently

No where "currently" does Blast have that actual sustained download speed...

Personally I'm not rebooting my modem since one out of the three upstream channels has been having issues (T4 errors) for 2 weeks now. It doesn't appear to affect speeds or latency (since there's still 2 good channels), but it does cause the modem to take much longer to lock than normal.

He didn't mention anything about sustained speeds, only that 36 Mbps is the best speed you'll see. During the Powerboost window I've seen speeds of 36 Mbps (or higher) with Blast.

Speaking of Powerboost, there is no Powerboost with the 50 Mbps or above Tiers so I'm assuming that Blast will no longer have Powerboost after the upgrade. Not that it really will be needed.

The question is now, how many more posts will discuss this subject before actual implementation of the new speed tiers?

In my world, anybody that pronounces it "patata" gets a nice pimp slap from yours truly.

I should have underlined, bolded, and italicized the "at best" part.

Well, got home tonight and noticed my modem dropped connection to the router!

Rebooted and noticed...... absolutely nothing changed.

*waits patiently*

I'm still waiting for tangible proof that this is really happening, like a Youtube video of a tv or radio commercial announcing it, or a Comcast website.

I've noticed over the past week that the ads on Boston and So. NH radio stations have decreased. A couple weeks ago they were heard every 20 min or so it seemed.

So if I play that audio clip back through my radio and record it on camera it will be okay?
