    Exclamation Comcast Internet Speeds

    I heard on the radio today, that; in most areas, comcasts speeds are to double! They were to take effect today, however; I am still getting 1721/198 from speakeasy. Anyone else hear the same or getting results already? Eager to see the difference!!

    According to the October issue of "Tech Edge" magazine(which has an article on broadband), Comcast's advertised speeds are 256/1800.

    If a speed increase is in the making, they apparently haven't done it in your area yet. I have Roadrunner and have heard that their download speed is increasing from 2000 to 3000, but that hasn't occurred in my area yet.

    Talk around the campfire is that the increase is going to happen before January 1st. That probably means December 27th or thereabouts.

    Thumbs up

    It is true for southeast michigan. The speed increase took effect 10-2-03. The speed for comcast is now 3000 down 256 up. All you have to do is unplug cable modem for about a minute plug her back in and go back online. The speeds for the rest of comcast subscribers is to double by the end of the year. I believe our local paper said 9 cities were given the increase yesterday.
