Comcast "PowerBoost" proven unuseful

Recommended Posts

The problem now though, is that speed test databases will be filled with this "boosted speed", and not the connections' "true speed". Which then ends up averaging Comcast's speeds a bit higher (quite a bit actually) than what they actually are. Which then, Comcast can use this information to convince people like you and I to keep Comcast, or even better yet, they could even be targetting people to pay the extra $10 for the greater boost.

you did alot of swtiching around there.

Upload stayed about the same  :haha:

I loved that REAL 10 Mbps "upgrade" though... until it just "disappeared" 3 months later. And yes, the speed was stable. Only took like 15 min to download a 600 MB file.

probally so people cant share stuff via bittorrent, and also so they cant run a very good server.

About the server thing, I ran a CS:S Server for my clan's scrim (back in year 2005 in january) and it could only run a 10 people server. If more people had to play, it eventually was lagging badly (everyone had like 100+ ms ping and eventually into the 500's). They were all complaining about the lag too ;)
