20/4 has arrived in PDX. I was hoping that the early reports of the PNW getting 20/4 instead of 25/5 were in error, but they're not.

Real-world is about 21.2, tested with multiple fast sites and DownThemAll.

I rebooted my modem at lunchtime, and when it came back up, I ran ShaperProbe. Results: just short of 22 Mbps down, about 4 Mbps up. Yay! (Performance tier)

Maybe there will be another small bump to the download speed in a month or so, but for now I'm happy.

I was on 50/10 - was getting 65/15. Now I'm getting 125/12 depending on which test. (Comcast test to Seattle has me at 155/13) I'm not happy with the drop in upload. Will have to look into that. Modem went crazy today and kept rebooting. Wife told me internet was out when I got home. Watched it reboot 5+ times. Then unplugged it for a minute and then it reboot about twice and was then online.

I did a speed test, rebooted my SB6121 tonight and then repeated the test.

Looks like I got the performance tier bump.
