I got the notice on my box a few weeks ago but still no update here in South Florida. Waiting...

Haven't heard anything here yet in WPB. I wonder when we'll be getting it.

Even if you're on the ultra tier you'll still get the speed increase.

That's interesting. Ultra tier in the SF East Bay runs $78/month if you have your own modem. But if it's going to be the same speed as Blast! for just $60/month, it seems like it'd be a bad deal to keep the Ultra tier anyway!

Here is my info from another post I made:

[Speed] Speed Increase - South Florida
Since the other thread about Comcast's recent speed increases is locked and gone I thought I would create one for South Florida (West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Miami and the surrounding cities). According to DSLR.net's Insider (link below) the update for us (South Florida) won't be until March 21st for Extreme & Blast users but perhaps later in April or May for "normal" Performance users. But you never know and maybe some will get it sooner (or hopefully not later anyway). There is also a new 300 Mbps tier which is mainly aimed at businesses, and is very expensive to boot, but is still very awesome!

Also with these updates is the fact that PowerBoost will be coming to an end. Even so many will miss that short burst of future speed happiness that we have all become accustomed too. But speeds are becoming so fast now that it makes PowerBoost almost irrelevant. So reboot your modems and routers and check to see if you have it (so I don't have to, lol)! And share your current speeds and plan info!

Speed Tier Changes:

Performance: 16(12)/2 Mbps to 25/4 Mbps
Blast/Ultra: 25/4 Mbps to 50/10 Mbps
Extreme: 50/10 Mbps to 105/20 Mbps

Note: Most users who don't know what tier they are on are usually on Performance, which is basically the standard unless you pay more. Also it's been said that Performance tier users won't see the boost until April or May. Current Extreme 105/20 Mbps tier users will have their price lowered to the Extreme 50/10 Mbps price point.

I think some get them in their bill and some get a message on their DVR. Me, I've never seen a useful message on my DVR -- just ads for sales jobs at Comcast, etc. and I don't read my bill so wouldn't see those.

If Madtown See Profile actually gets upgraded tomorrow as said by Anonymoussss then I will have some hope we will see upgrades in Oregon by the end of the month.

I will post here if I get it or not. I will check my CC e-mail acct 4rm time 2 time.

Well looky here, Comcast's website today in the Denver area. Guess Anonymoussss was right!

Although that said, I don't have the speed yet even after rebooting.

I did find out my account is coded with owning my own 'D2' modem even though I have a 6120 (obviously D3). Would that matter for the update?

EDIT: Well, there you go. I just called up Comcast's site again and it put in Broomfield CO as the default zip. Didn't notice that. They've got 50. Yet when I put my neighbor's address in 80125 where I am, it still shows 30.

Sigh...

FWIW, Comcast's site shows upgraded speeds for my personal address in their system, even though I've power cycled 5 times today and still no upgraded speeds here in Houston.

I'll wait until the 21st before finding out what's going on.

I'm seeing the same thing for Comcast's page in the Portland OR area (although given the info above from Anonymousss it may be premature). Is a reboot of my modem and router required?

Just saw this Comcast press release about the speed increases for California:

Comcast To Double Speeds Of Two Of Its Most Popular XFINITY Internet Speed Plans In California At No Additional Cost
PR Newswire - March 19, 2013
»www.prnewswire.com/news-releases···021.html

However, there is this note in it:
*Note: A few select areas in Comcast's California footprint will not receive the new Internet speeds: Santa Cruz/Scotts Valley Area (will receive the new speeds this Summer); as well as Arbuckle, Maxwell, Williams, Auburn Lake Trails, Isleton, Tower Park and Rio Vista.

Reboot your modem.

There are pretty widespread reports from Fresno to Sacramento in the central valley and from the bay area to the foothills.........

The last page may reflect some locations Johkal See Profile hasn't gotten to yet.

Okay but I'm slightly confused as another (you perhaps now updating yourself?) @comcast.net person earlier in this thread said Colorado was the 19/20th. Now you're saying the 28th?

I just checked my e-mail acct with CC and still no e-mail stating Performance been upgraded. I don't feel like rebooting my modem to see if I get the speed. As soon as I do, I will let you know.

Madera definitely received the performance speed increase last night, as others have suggested - you should reset your modem.

DL speed is slow, but UL speed is faster now. Not sure why that is. I rebooted my modem twice.
