The »business.comcast.com/newspeeds page is no longer active. I wonder if they just removed it until they are ready to push out the new speeds or maybe they are still tweaking some of the details.

Hmm. We all know they want to increase prices, so that part will probably happen no matter what. It sure would be unfortunate if they didn't follow through with the speed increase at the same time.

Maybe every business customer restarting their modem several times a day is a bad thing?

Particularly if some of those business customers were using the SMC gateway in bridge mode or with static IP addresses, and the SMC glitched during the power cycle requiring Comcast support to restore the bridge mode or static IP config.

I've got statics... never seen them get lost on a reboot though.

Still no love in Chicago. Driving the whole shop nuts because I reboot a couple of times a day just in case.

So this has been confirmed to be a nation wide upgrade?

No, actually kind of the opposite. The page has been taken down altogether.

I'd say let's hope it happens sometime this month, but for now don't reboot your modem daily

I'm definitely seeing better speeds here at work in Chicago using ShaperProbe. Will try at home tonight before I power cycle the gateway so I have a better idea, plus we only have 12/2 at work.

Yes, I power cycled my SB6121 and my SamKnows TL-WR1043ND box last night to make sure that some problems I had experienced several weeks ago with the SamKnows box had indeed been fixed, and I noticed that the SamKnows throughput results had gotten higher overnight. Those higher average throughput results have continued throughout the day.

An additional ShaperProbe test that I just ran:

and also the ICSI Netalyzr test:




seem to point to the new 12/2 --> 16/3 speed tier change having been implemented at this location. I suspect that this is something that is being individually done at each franchise, so it probably won't happen at the same time everywhere in Comcast's footprint. FWIW, I do not see any evidence of a new config file having been installed in my SB6121 log display page, but I am not sure if that is even displayed with the SB_KOMODO-1.0.6.6-SCM00-NOSH SB61xx firmware.

I just rebooted my modem and got my speed boost. I'm downloading at a constant 2MB down. I'm in Memphis, TN.

The only time I've seen the config file for my SB6120 show up in the log was during/after the 1.0.3.3 -> 1.0.6.6 upgrade. No amount of resets/reboots with either firmware got it to show up again. Here's when I saw it during the firmware upgrade, although that was when I had 50/10. I have no idea what the 22/5 one is named.

I did a reset/reboot a few minutes ago to see if the new speeds made it here yet. Unfortunately, no. Good to see that you got it though, I wasn't expecting them to roll it out until later (when companies say "by X month", I always assume at the very end of that timeframe ).

You are at the 27/7 level. You need to look at the traffic shaping section. You are showing 28.7/6.9 Mbps as your actual rate. I would have though the upload would have been just a touch higher.

The estimated capacity is what the burst speeds could be. You are in the same situation I am where on my end the estimated capacity was ALWAYS much higher for up and down.

Well whatever

Main point was that it seems to have rolled out even though the page isn't up

I just wanted to point out that you actually have 27/7 and not 37/7 for others that might read it and get confused.

If I remember right the original webpage said the price announcement would be in the bill we all get on the 15th (or at least I think we're all on the same 15th day billing cycle?)
