Powerboost

I'm pretty sure PB only applies now to lower speed tiers. I'm on Blast (50/10) and don't have it. When I was on the lower speed tier (16/2 at the time) I did have it.

As speeds increase, at some point PB (20% increase for 10 seconds) becomes irrelevant (not to mention impossible for the highest tier).

I would've been interested to see PB reflect the next tier up/fastest tier available. Have 16/2 on a D3 system and pulling down 105 for the short time would've been cool.

For those that have it, like me, I wonder how long PB will remain? Until I get the 50/15 upgrade?

Please, please Comcast take my powerboost, just give me a speed increase.

Please realize that non-northeast users are paying customers too.
Although there's no FIOS here, we do have other options. I have U-verse and WOW to choose from. They may not have the higher speeds either, but I would get a new customer discount.

I've always had PB on the Blast tier. Still do on the download as of a few hours ago.

You don't get powerboost with the economy tiers. I think it starts at the performance tier.

But is your Blast tier 50/10 or the lower 25/4? I had PB on Blast until it changed to 50/10.

I've had 50/10(15) for the last few years.
