Comcast - Insane speed upgrade??


Recommended Posts

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!
