Re: [Speed] Comcast Business Class Speed Upgraded in California

Lucky you. I used to see powerboost speeds in excess of 100Mb. Best I can do now on speed tests, even Comcast's local speed test, is 36Mb down and 7Mb up. Looks like I have gotten royally screwed.

You do know you get what you pay for right? - Granted if you have the 100meg tier and you get 36meg down now then yes, that would be cause for concern - yet those files were not updated. That bug that showed your speeds in excess of 2x-5x was just a glitch in the Matrix.

Yes, damn those real-world, sustained use speed upgrades that you received. Obviously you got cornholed.

Yes I did as most of the downloading I do is not long term and sustained. I greatly benefited from the short bursts. I don't download binaries from news groups like so many here complain about.

You were never intended to get those bursts to begin with. Deal with it.

I am not getting what I pay for. As part of what I PAY for is the ability to have the initial burst speeds which are included in my package.

Go do some reading about what is provided as it is part of what I PAY for and not a bug!

No, I will not.

Business, at least at the 22/5 package, has ALWAYS gotten power boost. Before you go off spouting off to something you have no clue about, go read up on it first!

I have business 22/5 (aka, 27/7) at the office, as evidenced by the fact that I confirmed that I'm receiving the new speeds. Not sure what type of crack you're smoking saying that I'm "spouting off." 22/5 has always had the ridiculous powerboost thing, but that has always been a bonus. Nowhere in the contract that I, or you, signed does it say that we're entitled to 100+ burst download speeds and 35+ burst upload speeds.

Now, based on the speedtest that I just did, it appears that that tier still has PB. I tested it at 38/8, which is still above and beyond what the contract states that I should be getting. Be glad you don't have the 50/10 business class; there's no PB at all on that tier.

You are "spouting off" as when I signed up, it was confirmed as part of the package from my sales person. You are not in my martket and have no idea what was in the contract I signed. However, by your know it all attitude and arrogance, you can a take flying leap!
