Re: [Speed] [BUSINESS CLASS] 12/2 or 22 Tier After Upgrade

said by airwavz:

So in reality, speeds did NOT significantly decrease, they really did increase, but you lost the 'pretty numbers' you saw with Powerboost on typical speed tests - those numbers might impress the 'gamer crowd', but most of us true business users knew better all along.

I ran large file transfers from Microsoft and consistently saw 7 MBps (not Mbps) through the whole download.

IMHO (and others'?), the "trial period" should accurately reflect the service I'm paying $2,000 for when I sign a two year contract. I can understand a slight decrease or heavy load times, but losing 80% of my speed because something wasn't set up right in the first place is not my fault. They have these gateways so locked down that I have no way of knowing, and my installation technician told me I could reasonably expect those high speeds. He said most Starter package folks got them, too.

On all of the speed tiers I've been on with business (16/2 -> 50/10 -> 22/5 -> 27/7), I've never had anything like that happen (50/10 had zero PowerBoost as well). On all of the other tiers, it's always been less than 30 MB worth of downstream PB, and about 10 MB for up. With the uncapped PB throughput that I've been experiencing, those "buckets" run out in just a few seconds.

Yep, you were misprovisioned if you were on starter. You are now on the correct tier.

Right. The idea is this: I wouldn't have signed a two year agreement with my current speeds. I was incorrectly given the super fast tier during my 30-day window and was led to believe (by my install tech, phone reps, AND sales rep) that the fast speeds were normal and to be expected. That is not my fault.

Holy crap, that's nuts. I've never seen that before for business, it definitely must have been provisioned wrong.
