Re: Post Your 2012 Clear Speed Test Results

Your Comcast speeds suck too.
I'm on the standard CC tier (Performance) and see 30Mbs/5Mbs on speedtests as Powerboost has probably been tuned to make speedtests look good.

well you may think it sucks but why exactly does my speed suck? because you have a plan that is faster? I had Comcast before and was very pleased and I use to get 6megs. I'm getting 12 now according to them and I get over that most of time,they are suppose to be doubling that soon I was told. not too many people get more than what I have where i live. my lady friend has the Fios and I don't think it is much better than what I have. and I am paying $39.99 for what I have . what do you pay?

I just had my lady friend go to speedtest.net. she gets almost 50megs down and 32up. I couldn't believe it. she has Verizon fios. we don't have it yet, Verizon has 2 DSL speeds and direct TV satellite in my area. I'm surprised because I am only 8 miles out of Boston and she is way down in a secluded area 20 miles south. I know when they get close to laying the fiber optic here comcast will up the bandwidth to try to match to keep people from jumping ship.
it is what it is as far as what I got and I concider it 10x better than clearwire!

and BTW she pays $155+ to Verizon every month!!! that is all 3 phone,internet and TV. way too much if you ask me. I have two phones (cell) and the high speed internet for $39.99 plus the cost of netflix. $48 I guess,my cell phones are free both paid by my company with unlimited data and calling and text.
