Re: [Speed] Speed increase

I saw the Xfinity ad here in Detroit.

Rolling across the top, it said "Doubling speeds on our 2 fastest tiers soon" and "200meg service coming this summer."

If you can, please post screenies or a captured radio ad if possible. I want to see/hear this with my own eyes/ears.

I heard the ad again too. This time I listened better and as jblues said double for 2 fastest tiers (I would guess is Blast and extreme).

But they also said about 60% faster for their most popular tier, which I assume is performance.

Kind of hard to record the ad going 75 on the freeway

Yeah, I'd say Blast and Extreme as well. Basically a mirror of what the NE area got a year ago.

And according to here, Performance is getting updated to the current Blast! speed of 25/4

PS: Record it when you can. It's understandable going down the freeway.

You're only going 75 mph on a Detroit freeway? When I lived there you'd be run over by the gasoline tankers doing 90 mph. In fact the state cops didn't stop folks on I-96 going less than 90 because there were plenty doing 100 mph or higher between Detroit and Lansing.

I have Blast (Freedom region) upgraded us about a year ago to 50/10. Just ran shaperprobe now so you can see:

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

Connected to server 203.5.76.139.

Estimating capacity:
Upstream: 10411 Kbps.
Downstream: 50064 Kbps.

The measurement will take upto 2.5 minutes. Please wait.

Checking for traffic shapers:

Upstream: No shaper detected.
Median received rate: 10229 Kbps.

Downstream: No shaper detected.
Median received rate: 50213 Kbps.

Excellent! *kisses ya, bugs bunny style* Exactly what I was looking for.

Reminds me of something Dadkins said back in the day about Comcast Blast! 16/2 vs AT&T DSL @ 6 megs.

Speeds AT&T just can't match. We both had a great laugh over it, despite me never seeing the Cali commercial.

Damned fine work capturing this.

Very excited about this. The west Ann Arbor routing topology recently changed significantly...they moved to a single xe-SUR router between here and Pontiac and speeds have already been more consistent since then. Can't wait for the new config file!

Im by washtenaw ave, still no change here. I dont think the change of route makes any difference speed wise.
we have performance, 25Mb down with power boost and then 16. what will i get after the new speed increase ?

I'm off Stadium and experienced frequent congestion on Blast (36 down w/powerboost then 25) until they changed the route. Now I get my provisioned speeds more frequently. Looks like performance will go to 25/4 in a2, and blast will go to 50/10. Can't wait!

Are you asking about sustained speeds?

I usually see about 22-23 Mbps I think sustained but not sure about the upload. PB is insane though right now lol. Youtube and other sites keep bursting up to 40-60 Mbps
