Not sure if this is what's happening to your connection, but I found this at the Comcast forums.

Magician,

We're not ignoring, just no additional info available yet on the upgrades (and we also get a day away from work every once in awhile!)

Some of you may already be seeing these new speeds but no markets have officially announced the upgrades are complete yet. Some of these upgrades will be pushed to portions of a market at a time so some may see it before we announce it here. Other areas may be doing testing in some areas first so there may be a chance you see the speed upgrade for a short time and then return to the normal speeds until the market officially upgrades.

according to the comcast.net forums you will receive an email if your area is due for an upgrade. caution though...you need to stay on top of it. when the new "upgraded 6mb tier became available I had to call them several times to get them to "open up" my modem for the higher speed. Keep running speed tests and call them on the phone vs the chat thing. i made a tech stay on the line with me for 30 minutes until I received the new upgrade (I also got a refund for 4 days of service  :D)

You won't necessarily get an e-mail. I live in MA where the upgrade is officially complete, and never got an e-maol.
