Re: Your source stinks...

I rebooted my modem last night and this morning I did a speedtest and got 50/10. I'm on Blast in the Chicagoland area (South).

The reason I rebooted last night was because I saw a commercial stating the speeds were in place. Thought I'd give it a try.

I just upgraded to extreme via the promotion, from blast.

end result? they haven't unlocked all 8 channels, so I'm stuck with 4 and now get to have a technician sent out.

proof that comcast support is just as bad as ever.

I get 31 download and 10.6 upload so the download has not upgraded yet. In chicago with Blast.

So in order to get the new speeds you need to reboot your modem?

Yes; the change is done via modem configuration files which are fetched by the modem from Comcast only when the modem reboots and if the config file has changed since the last reboot. So if you reboot and you don't see a change in speed then the upgrade hasn't been rolled out to your area.

I was told Performance won't see upgrades to 25/5 until later this month or next month
