What a nice surprise. :D

Other ISP's in your area may be offering faster speeds, or are planning to do so. Comcast is stepping up to the plate so you'll remain one of their customers.

I haven't been on the Comcast forums in quite a while. I wonder if anything has changed as far as what upgrade they'll be going with for the rest of the nation. Last time I checked, areas without any threatening competition would be getting 10Mb down/1Mb up as their fastest package.

I think that is the case, i always pay my bill ahead of time and i bring it to the local office,which is less than a mile away,but i held up untill the after the due date,and was going to call and haggle a new price based on near by providers speeds and prices,and before i called, i checked my speed and it went from 8.3 to 16-17

i get on average about 24 to 26 most of the time but off peak i can get 30 and i always get atleast 1700 up which is great for $45 a month.  the basic plan for optimum is 2000 up and 15000 down so maybe you should try optimum again for $30 a month promotion deal and keep both to compare it and see which 1 you like best.  you get a few more options with boost which is the package i have so check it out.

16/1 from Comcast, 10/1 (possibly) from Charter, Verizon FiOS, OOL Boost....

WTF, come on Adelphia!  Many people wonder why Adelphia customers are anxious about this takeover with Comcast/Time Warner.  It's because some of us want fast(er) speeds too (amoung other things)  :?
