Switching to new package soon..

Well.. from what it sounds like.. To benefit from the new speeds you need to call them and switch to the "Optimum" package. We currently have Bresnan's Speed Plus package (15x1) and it's rather nice. I did hear that the new package is (30x5) which would be rather sweet.

I'm a bit surprised they don't auto-update everyone to the new packages, though.. I can't wait until they push the update through so I can get a new baseline.

I think it is because a truck roll is required. See my post here for more info: »Re: New Speeds!

Hmm.. Wonder why a truck roll is required. I thought all they were doing was pushing an update.

I'll ask around here and hopefully get a few answers.

I just upgraded from 8000/384kbit to 15/2mbit. I had to call them to upgrade. It cost me an extra $1.50/month due to small differences in price structure, but I think a near doubling in my download a 5x increase in my upload is well worth a $1.50.

They upgraded what was the Boost tier (30/5) to Boost Plus (50/8). I'm guessing Bresnan didn't upgrade their system to DOCSIS 3 yet. You'll love the even faster speeds to come. We just hope we get the channels that Bresnan got that us over here in the original Optimum territory don't have transfers over our way.

Good load!
Mediacom are you listening! Going from 3-12 Mb is a huge jump and iId love for them to offer a performance plan like Comcast where you can get 5 or 6 mb for $30

They have been updating to DOCSIS 3 in some areas. I think Billings is one of them.

Hopefully Cablevision will speed the rollout across the former Bresnan footprint up a bit more.
