I wonder if they increased their basic package too? I remember when they increased it from 5 mb to 9 mb I didnt get the increased speeds because I didn't have the "Premier package" or something. Welp, when I go home from college for thanksgiving break ill test and see  ;) .

the upload on the other hand still sucks. no matter what I do, i run at 70-80% and it just doesn't seem to change.

The best I've seen on upload was about 83% but should be able to do better. I know it's not to far from the "advertised" upload. any suggestions??
