Re: [OOL] Wanting to change internet

Yes officially 15. Reality, I got 21 and this was since a few years ago when I got the D3 modem until December 2012. We can all argue about what number it is officially or what numbers you each get individually, but from my personal experience, I got 21 down w/o Boost "Plus".

in most areas they cut basic back from 21 to 18
my guess is to try and sell boost plus while still providing above advertised speeds

It'd be better if the regular tier was bumped up to Boost Classic speeds of 30/5.

This would require the use of D3 modems (since it pushing the limits of a D2 Single Channel Modem). Right now, Standard Tier can be supported by D2 modems (although I think that all new customers are supplied with D3 modems and anyone with a SB4100 can get a free swap to a SB5200 or a D3 modem since the SB4100 does not fully support the full Standard Tier speeds [it can not do over 10Mbs]).

I don't think they'll do a swap, but they will loan you a new modem at no cost for as long as you keep service. You would get to keep the modem you bought and get whatever they loan you as a 2nd modem in the house - basically, you can keep your paperweight D1 modem.

When I said "swap" I was assuming that the SB4100 was a CV supplied modem that was never replaced when they bumped Standard Tier to 15/2 (you had to ask when that occurred since the modem replacement was not automatic).

This is the way I envision it.

Regular Tier - Current: 15/2 Proposed: 30/5
Boost Plus - Current: 50/8 Proposed: 70/10

Speeds are a crapshoot.

When they're good, they're very good. When they're bad, they're horrid.
