That's for 50/10, not 50/15.

I had an additional upload channel bond a week ago and bumped up from roughly 50/10 to now 50/15 peaking around 63/16 now. No official note of change but I had been consistently 10 up (for at least a year) until a week ago.

It's certainly not available here in Northwestern California.

When I called Comcast they said they increased the upload up on the 50 mbps service to 15mbps from 10mbps.

Stupid question, but how do you get to that page now? What's the URL? Since they redesigned their website I haven't been able to find plans or pricing on anything but the business site.

Thanks.

Interesting that Blast and Extreme 50 aren't in the list.

This is what I get for 'New customers'. It doesn't show Performance or Extreme 50 when I select 'Current Customers'

Interesting website design to say the least...

It's comcrap being dumb.

I have same issue, but if I go to the site as a new user, not existing I see Extreme...

Just go to home page and on top click the zip code you see and click new customer link or whatever it says.... Sad they make us jump around like this.

If I sign in as existing customer I see TV and Phone only... If I play with the URL I can get it to show me internet plans but it shows me two Blast! 16Mb and 30Mb for same price for me. My are will not see the upgrade for a good year

If I could get Extreme 105 for $80/month I would speed to the nearest Comcast service center and throw cash at them.

I'm still waiting. The website has shown Extreme 50/105 are available yet they haven't installed the D3 equipment at my headend yet, DESPITE it being there. The install date has been pushed back several times now. I'm ready to upgrade from 16/2 !

You know what's weird is that I get like 53mb down and a little over 10mb up but I've never seen it go past 53mb down and 10.37mb up so your lucky your lucky.

I'm seeing 54/7, but I am missing the center uplink channel. Hoping that's an issue with the Moto CMTS I'm on that updated software as it also doesn't support IPV6.

Well... I am now getting 110/19, but I broke down and bumped up to 105/20. was able to get it at the $105 price point (Thanks ComcastSteve!) But interesting I can get 110 down but cant seem to push past 19 up now. Ahh Well! NO COMPLAINTS!

congrats on your upgrade, glad it all worked out what kind of network setup do you have going? switches, routers, access points?

Modem - tm722g EMTA (trying to get a tm822g 8x4 I hear they might be purchasable now..)

router - Dlink dir-827 for ipv6 access works great!

couple of gigabit switches, whole system is cat5e but no problem holding gigabit connections.

A old dlink running ddwrt as a access point (but it can't handle 104Mbs throughput wireless so I think I will upgrade it)

Works for me!

The faster speeds seem to mostly be in the Fios regions for now. Uverse is no threat so they are taking their time to offer it to the rest of us.

If they moved Blast up to 50/10 tomorrow I'd jump ship from Uverse the very same day for it. Too bad they only have Uverse to "compete" with here... I'm getting bored of this.

We don't even have Uverse out here in Redwood Valley (Rural Mendocino County, NW CA), in fact AT&T just got DSL to our home this summer, but it's SLOW, 768 Kbps. We have Blast! on Comcast, 25/4 (35/6 with Powerboost), and it flies 24x7, thank goodness for that!
