Re: Time Warner Boosting Standard Speed to 15Mbps

First I want to thank you guys/gals on this forum because of this specific thread I was able to tell the Customer Service a couple of weeks ago "NO Thank You" to their suggestion that I take avantange of a special short term $5.00 upgrade from 10/1 to 15/1. I told the CS person that I've heard that the entire system will be increased very soon to 15/1 so I will NOT take this extra $5.00/mo right now.

Well...tonight at 6:15pm eastern I received notice via email from TWC that Yes!! 15/1 is available for no extra...

Edit 12/12/12 I have not seen the speed increase yet, even after a modem reset, but it could take a few days to change all the settings back in the headend...

I'm now seeing consistent 14-16/800-1.1 speeds

Edit off......

Here is the notice below...
so thanks again...you saved me $5.00/mo for the short term anyway...

15/1 is now working in Triad area North Carolina. Power Boosts to 24/1 for now. I have heard that powerboost will be gone when I get my purchased SB6141 installed. I am just happy to finally get rid of terrible 384 kbps upload.
