Have not heard anything but sure hoping it comes soon.

I did notice that Premier here DROPPED to 25 down. It looks like they took PowerBoost off the website. So now, OKC has 3/12/25/50 as our 4 tiers.

I have 8 down channels but only 1 up. My guess is we won't see the additional speeds here until I get upstream bonding.

Wonderful. So now they're going to start charging more for less service. My next bill, the price of everything (cable, internet, phone) are all going up.

That's what it looks like although the Preferred tier, which use when I am at home, is still showing up to 15 Mbps down...

If they are looking for me to pay more AND get less, I'll drop them instantly.

AT&T sucks here but if I am going to pay more I had damn well better get more. I'll deal with AT&T's crappy speeds or may just use my hotspot only (I don't use much data at all, just a home office).

I talked to the VP of Cox, and they said OKC was scheduled for the 150 speed increase during the 3rd quarter of 2013.

We'll see.

Let's hope that is true because all that has been happening in this market for some time is price increases.

Look at the essential package. Its $42.99 for 3000/768. Those exact same speeds were $39.99 on the preferred package in 2004 when I had it. I thought the cost of delivering bandwidth was way down over the years?

Now Preferred has gone from $39.99 to $54.99 since then.

Because TV was subsidizing HSI but with all the cord cutting going on, the dollars dried up for the subsidy hence rate hikes on hsi!

HSI is more profitable then TV. If anything the reverse is happening.
