Upgraded Internet Speed

I always read the mostly negatives, but thought I would post that I recently upgrade my internet from 15/1 to 50/5 and speed tests show slightly above each. This increase in upload will be very nice when I am uploading my photos to get printed. The process was simple... Call WOW, agree to price of upgrade, they upgrade the profile and reboot the modem and good to go. The download speed increase will also be of benefit with netflix streaming and amazon prime streaming

netflix streaming is fine on 15 meg download. you can easily stream two 1080p movies at the same time with that with extra for web browsing.

Curious what modem you have to go from 15 to 50 without a change?

I agree, if Netflix is your thing and you have more than 15 down, you're overpaying.

I'm not concerned with the down... I got this for the upload.

Don't want to say what modem?

WOW has said that a DOCSIS 3.0 modem is needed for higher speed tiers. Have to assume you already had DOCSIS 3.0 for your 15 since that seems the only way it would make sense you could move to 50 without changing equipment.

Got emails today from WOW telling me all they did for me in 2013. Raised speeds to 50Mbps. Not here in my former Knology area - still maxed at 25Mbps for "The Edge". They did drop usenet for me. Did not lower my bill however!
