I went away on vacation and when i came back my speeds have been way up. I used to have just 8mbps/768 kbps up

now i get this

Ah sorry for bad typing on the first post. I have Comcast internet, my regular speed was 8/768. I just downlaoded microsfot office 2007 trial and it started at 3.06 Mbps and ended at 2.60 Mbps, is that just powerboost? the download was 300 megabytes. If it was just powerboosted i thought that just lasted a few seconds. Also FIOS is only a few miles (less than 10) away,i dont know if that has anything to do with it.

EDIT: Oh and all last week my modem kept freezing itself.

My ISP is Earthlink, but provided by Comcast now that Time Warner is gone from the Houston area. And it's STILL $3 a month cheaper than Roadrunner or Comcast.  :wink:

Well, she's not an alien, but I have been occupied lately. I can't get on at work since January, because of this damn "Websense" blocker they have. Pisses me right off!

But I'll be on when I can. Good to see you guys are still here!  :smitten:  LOL

I uplaoded at 250 KBps all day for a linux torrent and i downloaded hl2 with solid 2.0 MB the whole time. I think this is lasting longer than speedboost should. it sometimes goes up to 500 KBps upload but then drops down to 250-300
