For nothing. They went to 10Mbps down and 1Mbps up, all for nothing. I'm very pleased and just wanted to know if you guys thought this was a good increase, went from 4Mbps down and 384Kbps up. I'm loving the speed increase.

Obviously a very nice increase.

Cable access in my area tops out at 6 megabit down and 640kilobits up right now. They haven't upped the speed in several years now.

LOL, that wasn't my point I know it's a nice increase just wanted to compare it to others broadband. You know DSL,Cable and the such. :D

But I'll get right on demanding a downgrade though. :p They might think I'm a bit nuts, then again theres nothing new. :)

Don't you just love it, I was so happy. Download 190MB file in under 30 to 45 seconds. :) Nothing like a speed bump for free. (nana2)

Its always nice when they do that! I know how my Cable provider kept upping its speed. I went from like 1024/128 up to 4096/384 in just over a year. Now I hope they will be doing a new spped increase in the new year I hear their top package may be up to 50Mbps download (not sure of the cost) I hope the package i have will go up to 10Mbps or 8Mbps.

Damn this is fast ... we had our first and only increase 2 years ago from 512kilobit to 1mbit. And the highest available package is 2mbit for 3000$ per year ... le sigh

Which cable provider do you have? My local cable company has been at 4/384 for a long time. (Adelphia)
