It's just a note in the "News from Comcast" section.

Re: [Speed] Northeast speed changes coming.

I am the Toms River NJ system. My bill says i'm on the performance tier. I'm currently getting 25/4 speeds. Can I expect an increase to 50 based on the above (News from Comcast post by TravelGuy). The original info I had seen mentioned Blast and Ultra tiers and not Performance.

No change in pricing AFAIK, other than the tier increase that was published a few weeks ago.

BLAST will be 50 so Performance would be around 25. Ultra is Xtreme 105.

Performace is currently 12/2, you're seeing PowerBoost.

BLAST will be 50 so Performance would be around 25. Ultra is Xtreme 105.

Except that according to this thread and the commercials, Performance isn't getting an increase as only "two of [Comcast's] top tiers" are getting a boost.

Performance is currently 16/2 (more with Powerboost).

failure to quote no 2. Anyway once again I was referring to Travelguys post that mentions Performance and Blast speed increases and not Blast and Ultra.

I see, you have 16/2 for Performance. I have 12 up to 15, on my bill. That's maybe where the confusion lays.

The confusion is intentional. Comcast markets their products with different specs (and prices) in different areas. If you don't actually know what you are paying for, you can't complain if you don't get it (or if a friend or relative in another area is getting more for less). And of course, by including PowerBoost, (or not including it in some cases) that confusion factor is greatly magnified.
