300Mbps Tier

I wonder if this will become available in Jacksonville, FL with these new speed upgrades...I'm on 105/20 now for $199.95 and would be very interested in upgrading. Does anyone have any details on this?

The 305Mb tier is delivered over fiber, so you need to be close enough to a node that Comcast will run the fiber to your premises. I believe the monthly rate is about $300, and there's a hefty install fee along with a contract.

Here's a thread from the Comcast HSI forum with someone who got it installed in the Washington DC area - »Getting 305/65

I see no reason why it would not be available in any market Comcast offers MetroE service. You just have to meet the installation requirements which Comcast seems flexible on. In my case, they had to run fiber underground for a few city blocks.

Thanks for the information guys. I'm aware of how much it costs and $300/mo isn't too bad for what you get. whfsdude, did you simply call Comcast and ask them about this tier or did you go through ComcastSteve or somebody here to get you setup?

I opened a ticket with ComcastSteve in the direct forum. I didn't have him place the order, just asked for a callback so I could discuss if I qualify and then place the order.

Executive support called me a few days later.
