Re: TWC Dallas, New Speed, Ultimate 75

said by txfeinbergs:

Guys, just a heads up that I am now running Ultimate 75 for $90 in the DFW area. I called in because it looked like I was being overcharged for the Extreme tier ($79 vs what they are offering on their website of $59). Apparently they are calling this a "promotion". Anyway, while jumping through the hoops to get my bill reduced, I asked the agent what the cost of Ultimate was, and they said "which one". Apparently they offer Ultimate 50, and Ultimate 75 now. Unfortunately, the upstream speed is still the piddly 5 mbps on both of them.

can you post a screen shot of speedtest?

I am wondering if Ultimate 75 is a stop gap speed until TWC adds two more downstream channels as right now they have 6 running on the downstream which is allowing them to offer the 75Mbps speeds. But I am wondering if there will a ultimate 100Mbps and an ultimate 125Mbps when they get 8 channels on the downstream for bonding. If Kansas City is to be followed I could see extreme being bumped up to 50Mbps.
