[Speed] PB on 50Mbit?

I just set up a new connection at the 50/10 Mbit tier... I thought from 50Mbit and up there was no powerboost? I am seeing spikes up to 89Mbit down! 49Mbit is a pretty big increase for someone who is on 50Mbit the highest peak upload was 12Mbit

Are you sure it's a burst and you haven't been upgraded to the 100 plan? Can you run shaperprobe and post the results?

It seems some areas with 50/10 have powerboost while others do not. But on business class AFAIK 50/10 has never had powerboost, so I"m assuming you're residential.

Ok so you're one of the lucky ones who has PB on 50/10 then Supposedly PB is going away eventually for everyone so enjoy it while it lasts!

I thought it was PB, remembered somewhere saying 50 and higher doesn't have it, thought Comcast put me on the wrong plan... and I'd only find out when the bill came and was way higher *lol*

I was mistakenly under the impression 50/10 didn't have PB *anywhere* either, but it turns out some places have it, others do not. I don't think ANY business class regions have PB for their 50/10 profiles, at least I've never heard of one.

I've never seen business 50/10 with PB. When I had residential 50/10 it was roughly 62/13, and then it turned into 50/15 at 62/16.
