Upload speed changes soon?

I, Since Mediacom has recently done "download speed" changes, When are we going to see upload changes?
I think for $60 a month the 30Mb should have more then 2 up. Also, How come there is no "speedboost" on either the upload or download and it is just the "over provisioning"?

Or the short answer is "no".

yeah i would like more upload from any provider but the only reason we got more download is because they upgraded to docsis 3.0.

because comcast and att were over sold and mediacom uses there hardware and back bones to run their service.. and then left the nodes with less load..

so they could give more speed to the low end but now have 50/5 and 105/5 over sold and lack of channels and the subscribers are not getting what they pay for..

i and about 70 people on mediacom online internet support forum have issues with modem bonding to only 1 channel at headend because the hardware is over sold.

im waiting on the tom and tos to service me with a new server rack for more channels

you do realize that tier 1 peering has nothing to do with comcast or att as ISP's right. Yes mediacom uses att for peering. No comcast does not they use several now level 1 being the biggest.

If the Blades at the headend are over sold then they need a new blade. Or a bigger pipe. To me it sounds like they have failing d3 gear in your area.

Oversold areas shouldn't have this kind of effect on channel bonding at the head end. If you want PM me your telephone# I can double check things for you.

Faster upload? I'm still waiting on DOCSIS 3.0 / 30Mbps here!

We have 25k according to wikipedia.

No speedboost on the 30Mbps? That sucks. If there's no speedboost, I'm not too sure it's worth it over 20Mbps + speedboost + no cap...
