Sweet!! Just got my Comcast Blast Plus upgraded to 50 Mbps down/10 Mbps up.

I was downloading Grand Theft Auto:San Andreas from Steam..and it ran at 4.0 MBps to 5.7 MBps the whole time.
Far too cool.

(I'm in downtown Portland,OR..)

Granite Falls, WA

I rebooted my modem after seeing Bellingham, WA was updated. I'm just outside Granite Falls, WA.

I was unable to get any speedtest.net servers to return the full download, although they were seeing the 10mbps upload. The shaper test did show the proper speeds though.

Here in Seattle, on performance and was getting better download speeds BEFORE the upgrade! Seems my upload speeds are slightly better but overall feels more like a downgrade. Download test starts out at 30 to 35 mbps and mellows out to the above.

Re: Seattle, WA

What modem do you have? If it's too old, you might not get the full download speeds.

Re: Littleton, CO

Near Downtown Littleton, with the new "Municipal Fiber Lines" a block away. Although we won't get to use them. Well nobody will. Have had readings of 35/5 a couple of months ago. But it's slower now.







Pretty Sad. And both from the same server.

We do have intermittent IPv6 though.

My performance tier speed (officially 15/3, but actually 25/3) was just bumped to 30/5. Unfortunately not a big increase because they were already giving me a better than advertised tier speed.
