In that case everyone should upgrade before the 15th and get grandfathered in at current pricing and receive the faster speeds.
Residential Boost or Boost Plus legacy customers (paying $9.95 to $14.95 per month) will receive the Ultra 101 service tier. There is no additional cost to these customers. Residential non-legacy Boost and Boost Plus customers will receive the Ultra 50 tier of service
said by iansltx:Cablevision was doing 30/5 on docsis 2 when Comcast started deploying docsis 3.
Because CV could only afford to have a few people on a node running at 101/15, since they were only bonding three or maybe four downstreams at the time the tier launched. It was to discourage people from signing up...or to get them to help pay for a node split...more than anything else.
Now, with multiple upstreams and 8x4 modems, it's less of an issue.
Though I'm kind of surprised that CV is only bonding two upstreams to get those speeds. Comcast is doing two 64QAM upstreams plus a 16QAM one in Denver-area markets and they only sell 20 Mbp sup.
Re: $300 Yep. And they were running things so tight that in many cases people weren't seeing 30 Mbps speeds on the download side.

Re: Yay Upload Speed Increase
said by tmc8080:Well, I just got my first bill. It was indeed $89.99. That's for Ultra business with one fixed IP. No bundles. I upgraded from boost+ residential at $69.99 to Ultra business under some promotion they were running which zeroed out the $300.00 install fee. It was a bargain upgrade for $20.00 more. In a year, I will be paying $114.00. That's for the ultra business with one fixed IP. The best part of this is their business tech support is 24/7 and you get through to a human right away. It's certainly worth the extra $4.00.
pricing for residential 101 is 54.90 + 55 = $110 (subtract upto $20 if part of a 2x or 3x bundle)
that is until new pricing is revealed.

said by dvd536:Tripling the upload speed at no extra charge is hardly a 'bone'.
nice to see them throwing a bone on the upstream
