  1. Thanks, man. That must explain it, that and me getting some abnormally high powerboosted download speeds at the same time. Maybe when they rolled out the upload powerboost, they increased the cap (or removed it entirely) on the download side of things too in my area.
  2. Actually, to be honest, I powercycle my modem and router all the time (we lose power twice a week at least) And I know I have been experiencing the powerboost feature for a year or more now, since I did consistently get more than 8 megabit down on tests for quite a while, sometimes more than twice that amount. Plus, don't you think it's weird that it happened to both me and my friend in the same neighborhood on the same day it seems? I'm guessing it must just have been Comcast upgrading their pipe in my area. BTW, how new is the upload powerboost? A week or less?
  3. Thanks Nos. Have you been getting that upload speed consistently since Comcast added powerboost? All I know is SOMETHING must have changed... atleast in my area. I have been testing this connection often for years and I have never once seen it burst over 2.5 Megabytes/sec download or 95 kiloBytes/sec on upload. I used to quite often get the tests I posted today (16 MBit down) with the PowerBoost feature but I'm telling you, I've never seen powerboost perform anywhere near this level. My friend noticed the exact same thing. Keep in mind the scores I posted on this thread arent anywhere near what I got consistently at home last night and this morning (25-32 megabit down, 3+ megabit up) Maybe Comcast just turned on our powerboost feature on the upload side of things, in my neighborhood? I mean it literally is 6x faster than it ever was all the time now. Or maybe they increased the bandwidth on there end in my area? Anyone have any more info?
  4. I'm not sure what you're looking for here... what does me using a particular crappy mirror prove? I posted my results using the default test on this website that picks the fastest mirror for you, and the largest file size. The mirror you keep posting give me very innaccurate results, cause the connection is intermittant and keeps pausing from my connection on that particular mirror (It'll go 2-3 MB/sec and then stop and go 0 for a few secs, on and off). Believe me, I confirmed my results on a few other bandwidth testing websites and got similar results to what I posted. Here is the only thing I could copy and paste off of Speakeasy, again over my crappy remote desktop connection: Last Result: Download Speed: 15886 kbps (1985.8 KB/sec transfer rate) Upload Speed: 2282 kbps (285.3 KB/sec transfer rate)
  5. Well, right now I'm connnected remotely to my machine from work so it's hard to get an accurate result, it mostly only shows on my upload speed right now, which NEVER went faster than 95 KB/sec until now, when it goes near 700 KB/sec a lot of the time! Also, I've never seen my download speed burst past 2.1 MB/sec now I see it burst to over 4 MB/sec a lot of the time! Again, the results below are not very accurate, they were done via remote desktop! :::..

  6. This is no joke! I've confirmed it with multiple speed tests both yesteday and today, on this site and a few others. I have the 8Mbit / 768Kbit plan from Comcast and live in Eliot, ME. A friend of mine who lives in town has confirmed the same speed on his connection as well. Is anyone else noticing a speed increase in the last week? Anyone seen any articles mention plans of this? My connection was downloading consistently from fast servers at 4 MEGABYTES a second! I think that's about double the speed of the average fiber optic speed here in the US.
  7. Hello, I live in Newmarket, a town in southern New Hampshire. We pay for the higher speed tier on our cable service, which at the time, was advertised as 6 Mb down instead of the normal 5Mb. Well, soon after we got it we noticed the speed went up to over 8 Mb/s speed, this is in multiple tests on multiple sites on different days and weeks. I confirmed with others on this board that they seemed to upgraded recently to the same speed. Recently however, after doing tests on this site and 2 other sites, i'm noticing our connection consistently scores between 12.5 and 15 Mb/s... over 1.6 megaBYTES a second! Has anyone else been upgraded like this recently? Maybe comcast is unrolling it in areas wto compete with FIOS? We only pay 52.95 a month for this speed! On good servers I download files at 1.5 or more Megabytes a second. I love my Fibre-speed cable connection!
