It's stil offered

I checked in my area yesterday and the packages they offer include powerboost.
They make it sound good with thier flowery marketing lingo.
I still cant tell if its any good like people say or they are just moved by the advertising.

PB is great. It really does allow for up to twice your "paid for" bandwidth in little spurts at the beginning of a TCP download. Web browsing is done in small "spurts" of transfers when a link is clicked, this is exactly what PB allows. When downloading a huge file at your maximum speed PB allows you to still "burst" to get that webpage you just loaded without it fighting with the regular download. Makes it feel "snappy".
