Re: [Speed] Speed increase.

Blast is usually upgraded to 50/10 when the performance tier gets the upgrade. YMMV.

No speed increase here in Atlanta, still on the 12/2 "Performance" plan, but it has Powerboost.

Isn't that just Blast in non Blast 50/10-15 areas?

f you get the change you will see a change in all the speed tests. For me the short tests for download were previously seeing the powerboost at 24 to 25 mbps, with longer tests reading 16 sustained. Now all tests read around 22.

Thanks for the clarification. I didn't realize they were moving it to 22/4 instead of 25/4 (where powerboost used to take it).

It was inevitable. Comcast isn't known for boosting Performance more then a few megs in any direction. If they did push it to 25/4 or better this time, for whatever reason (Testing a 2013-14 upgrade maybe?) I'd expect Blast! to be 75 or better to justify spending more then the price quoted for Performance.

Something else I've seen continually. Comcast loves to recycle old speeds. If Performance is now really 22/4, they've recycled an old version of the Blast speed that was rolled out in certain areas and it also brings to mind the grandfathered and soon to be completely dead Ultra 22/5 speed.

I'm just north of Philly ... got my e-mail and rebooted my modem and router over the weekend. I'm on performance and previous to the reboot, shaperprobe and other longer speed tests would show 16/2, with shorter speed tests showing 25/4 probably due to power boost. After the reboot it looks like almost all the diffrent speedtests are consistent with ~ 22/4. So from my end it looks like powerboost is gone

Re: [Speed] Speed increase.

No change here, in Miami, FL. Have an older biz plan, 16/2.

I'd love more upstream, but I'd feel bad about losing Powerboost! I like the fact that I can upload large images in an instant.

I see the same issues when running ShaperProbe on several laptops using Intel WiFi. I noticed the issue after reinstalling Windows. I am not sure if its the WiFi drivers or something else. Laptops not using an Intel WiFi radio do not exhibit the issue. Also using wired ethernet to the laptops I don't see the issue

That's the thing, no wireless here at all. Only wired.

Not sure if we got it here in Denver But I have never seen this over my Wireless before !! I did this test many times and keep getting 35-38/5-6 I am on the blast service FYI !

This site is not supper accurate itself.

It told me my upload was like 6.6Mb lol when it's 5.5 and no PB. ShaperProbe even verified that.

It also says my DL is like 38Mb and it's 36 with PB and 25 without...

I would say stick to Shaper and just run it a few times to make sure as sometimes it grabs a slow server.

Ok I think somethings wrong.......I like what I see, but something seems totally screwed...

I went and ran ShaperProbe, just to see if I've lost Powerboost or not yet.

Below is the actual results

quote:
DiffProbe release. January 2012. Build 1008.
Shaper Detection Module.

Connected to server 38.102.0.85.

Estimating capacity:
Upstream: 10043 Kbps.
Downstream: 19157 Kbps.

The measurement will take upto 2.5 minutes. Please wait.

Checking for traffic shapers:

Upstream: Burst size: 3111-3399 KB;
Shaping rate: 2128 Kbps.

Downstream: Measurement aborted due to high packet loss rate.

I had to look a few times at the estimated upstream capacity. I'll put it here again, with a , in the right spot 10,043 Kbps . Knowing that the downstream is 19,157 Kbps which of course is 19 MB/sec. I could not believe that my upstream turned out to be 11 MB/sec.

I figured something had to be wrong..it was a bad reading, some odd fluke.

So, I went to »www.speedtest.net/, and ran a test.

Here's the link to show what I got. And, to help verify that I did not doctor anything, I'll post the link as well as the picture.

»www.speedtest.net/result/2488715030.png



41.24 MB/s ON THE UPLOAD????? Holy Christmas batman! That rocks, if indeed its true.

Edit: I did two more speed tests on different sites.

First, we have one from "SpeedOfMe"

»speedof.me/show.php?img=13020505···2969.png

Then we have Comcast's IPv4 speed test site

»stage.results.speedtest.comcast.···0762.png

Pics of both attached as well.

Looks like something crazy is going on with the upload side of things.....

You're confusing Mbits/s and MBytes/s.

10 Mbps on the upstream isn't unusual with PB. Neither is 41 Mbps for that matter. When I had uncapped PB, I'd regularly see 30+ Mbps on speedtest.net tests for upstream.

I'd run a few more tests on speedtest.net, as that result could have been bogus. I trust shaperprobe more than speedtest.net

Well, I know speed tests can be wrong. However, I've always tested in the morning, and have never seen my upload go above 4.5 MB/s at all with that speed test site.

I do trust shaperprobe over any speedtest site that is for sure.

Also what's interesting is when I ran the one at Comcast's page, the upload was all over the map..few seconds it was between 2-5 MB/s, then it would shoot up to well over 25, then another second later go back to 15, and then up 20 again...all in the course of the test.

Have you tried uploading something to see what it does?

Also, did you ever receive any email yet?

I predict that I'll be the last one to get it or never get it at all .
