What are the official new Speeds in AZ?

Here is what I am seeing on Premier.


4.0MB/s ~ 32Mbps

This morning I am seeing consistent 13MB / 100mbit with the Ultimate tier. It shocked me enough that I came here to see what was going on!

I'll have to see when I get home from work. I only have preferred with an SB6120, but I was pulling around 20 down consistantly and around 3.5-4 up. And that is after power boost wears off.

DNS is out

Switch your DNS servers to 4.2.2.2 and 4.2.2.1 and all will work

I guess I need to plug in my SB6580 to get more than 100Mb/s. This 6120 only does 4x4 bonding.

Nick, can you post your speedtest with the 6580? I have a 6120 and the max I get off Cox's test is 137 mbps.

Should I look at spending $120 to get the 6580? (Just because I want the most I can get )

If I buy the 6580, does it require anything on Cox's side to get it working? Or do I just replace the 6120 with it and it works?

If you still prefer to have separate router/modem the SB6141 is also an option for Motorola.

You have to call them and provide the modem's MAC for provisioning. I'll set it up in the next couple days and post an update..

Does anyone with a SB6141 have increased speeds today? My 6141 rebooted overnight but same speeds as yesterday.

I am the one who posted the scottsdale --> LA speed. I had a 6120, and I went and bought the Cisco 3010 from the cox store this morning. It doesn't have a built in N router which suits me fine as I have the buffalo AC router/bridge combo in my home anyway. In short, yes you have to get a newer D3 modem that is capable of 8x4 bonding. Just for a real world throughput demonstration, I downloaded wow this morning in about 10 minutes.

Here are the new speeds from the Cox Phoenix web page. Interesting they only quote Powerboost speeds!

My speeds went up, but I no longer getting my 3 IP address's. SB6120 and I am seeing dnlds speeds of 40 - 50 MGb and uploads at 11-20 Mgb.

Called Cox and they are telling me that they have a DNS issue, but what does that have to do with DHCP Ip adddress's

Thanks, that server sits on the Cox network in LA, CA, I used it to determine sustained download speeds in the past.

Any recommendations to test large file downloads?

Well its possible a routing issue between me and that server. I just know I can download at around 13MB's, and I couldn't even download at 1MB's on that file.
