I was wondering, What boost stuff? also, can I get in  in california?

It's called Comcast Powerboost, and is still being rolled out, I'm in Michigan and we have it here, not sure if it has reached Cali yet.

It just gives a burst of speed depending on the size file you are downloading.

If you are on the 6000/384 plan it will burst the download to 12000 and the 8000/768 plan will burst to 16000.

although we have been seeing even higher speeds than that.

Powerboost is a tool Comcast uses when you're downloading files.  It helps keep the bandwidth open for faster speeds.  In Washington State, if you have the 6000 tier, you go up to 10000; 8000 you go to 12000.  More to come in the future.  I know in different regions, the speeds are faster. 

There have been some problems, not many though.  the main issue seems to be a lagged after the download.  Doesn't last long, but for some gamers it's annoying.
