You don't need to power cycle to receive 50/10 or 100/20 up

Just as an FYI, you do not need to waste your time power cycling your modems. The boot files are exactly the same. The node when instructed properly will deliver the upgraded speed automatically. No new configuration in the modem itself.

This is true for the most part but maybe not depending on the local system. And the "node" has nothing to do with it, it's the CMTS that controls this. And how could it hurt anyway ? How much time does it really waste ?

doesn't this have to be the case? That would imply if you downgraded tiers from like xtreme50 to performance then you could just never reboot your modem ;p

But typically when Comcast exits your account your modem is rebooted.

Oh that absolutely will work when you have someone change the boot file directly in a system that doesn't force a reboot of the modem. That being said, youll likely never get an agent that knows how to do that, let alone do it for you when you ask.

If you make a change in the billed to a rate code, it automatically resets the modem.
