Re: Time Warner Boosting Standard Speed to 15Mbps

Looks like they already have pushed So. California up to 15/1 as that is what I am not testing at on the standard tier !

Funny, I can pull down a consistent 17 Mbps on SpeedTest.net but I can't get a regular file download from anywhere (nVidia, Microsoft, etc.) to go faster than about 250-300 KB/sec at 1 a.m. Is TWC manipulating the speed test site results or what?

Edit: Found »www.hd-trailers.net can deliver at a little over 1 MB per second.

Getting ~30Mb/sec with Powerboost. Still ~9.7Mbps without PowerBoost, so it hasn't gone live in Los Angeles yet.

Something's definitely changed. Previously, Speedtest.net would peak at around 22 Mbps and then drop down closer to 10 Mbps for me. When I just ran it, it stayed around 33 Mbps for the entire test. Even if that was Powerboost for the whole transfer, that's faster than the Powerboost used to be.
