Powerboost is something Comcast is putting out in areas that don't have Verizon Fios.  It gives your downloads a speed burst for about a minute before it starts to settle down to your advertised speed.  You'll get a better explanation here:  http://news.com.com/Comcast+gives+broadband+users+a+speed+boost/2100-1034_3-6079070.html?tag=nefd.top

We just got news today that now Comcast is going to be deploying Powerboost on the Upload side in February.  We will be Powerboosting anywhere from 1 to 2Mbps, depending on our original tier.  Should make a lot of people happy, but then some will still complain.

Have a great day.

Larry

Man, just how lucky can some folks get?? Glad for you guys. Hope it catches on.  :icon_thumright:

I work for Comcast as well.  For regular users who get 6MBdown/384KBup, your downloads will be up to 12MB down and up to 1MB up.  The speed for downloading will only last for the first 10MB of data.  The upload will only last the first 5MB of data.   Now for premier which is 8MBdown/768KBup, it is up to 16MB down and up to 2MBup.  The speeds for downloading will last for the first 20MB and for upload will last for 10MB.  Once those limits have been met, its supposed to throttle back down to your original tier.  Does it vary in real life?  Welp, once we see some files of great size, like over 100MB being downloaded and some numbers posted,we might get a better picture.  It's all throttled.  So the more that Comcast rolls this out to all of their markets, we'll see how it turns out.  From what i can gather so far, it looks promising.  If not, hey, it's better than what we had before :)

Watching the status bar on the speed tests you can see how some of the hops just kind of stop in their tracks.  Anyway, even with that, still fairly decent speeds.

Thanks dlewis23.  Yes, I tend to forget that not everyone can achieve those speeds and that I'm extremely lucky I have a great connection.  Speeds are great this morning tool.

Very nice man. So how long does the boost last when downloading a large file?
