Looks like my Lightning account which was 40/5 is now 50/6 and at work we had 50/5 and it is now 50/6.

Anyone confirm or seeing and upgrades in speed?

I'm wondering if there was a little "favorable tweaking" done with the logic in the speed tests themselves, or if the increase is legitimate. The biz locations I have on lightning that were solidly in the 50/5 to 50.5/5.1 range are now approaching 58/6 consistently.

Maybe tweaking would be possible if it were just the BHN site but its pretty much any site you test from. There just provisioned higher now

Imagine that... an ISP that provides MORE service than they claim in their ads. It sounds too good to be true...Surely there's a downside like a 10 Terabyte download cap or something

You are right. The catch is that the cap is not 10 Terabytes but just one Petabyte... or was that one Exabyte?

I was happy to see 46-48Mbps immediately after having lightning installed recently. The tech even seemed surprised I was getting higher than the advertised 40Mbps. My Ubee config is showing "Downstream Service Flow" set to 48Mbps. Wish they could make it an even 50. I'm pretty sure it was set to 49Mbps when I first got it.

Lately most tests are hovering around 46Mbps.

It seems like they are still tweaking the faster than tier speeds. My Lightning (40/5 tier) using Motorola had been steady 47 and 6, now it is slightly under 46 and slightly over 6.

Wow it must be a CFL thing. My Lighting only get's 35-41Mbps Download and 4.5-5.01Mbps Upload. I Sure hope My Node get's Updated Soon.

I'm on the RR Standard for my area (7) and just got an email telling me all Standard customers are getting a free upgrade to 10 meg service. Thanks Brighthouse! I guess Lighting is coming soon to my area.

Cool, Wonder if they'll do the same for turbo customers? That would be awesome!

Here is mine, from east coast of Volusia County, FL. Modem is the Arris TG852, bridged to a Linksys WRT54G running DD-WRT v24 (I think).

I got another email that my speed had indeed been upgraded to 10 meg. However, I've seen only a less than 1 meg improvement. I was getting just under 7 now I'm getting about 7.6. This is the same for my in-laws across town. The highest I've hit is 7.8.

Up here in Michigan, I've been getting over 11+ consistently since the upgrade. Since before I was only getting 6 on a nominally 7Mb link, it just about doubles my speed.
