Re: [Speed] Speed increase

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.
