Thread: Comcast Powerboost!

  1. #21

    better late than never!

    maybe this is a bit late to post this but...



    Frequency of Download and Upload Speed Bursts / How long in between Bursts?

    PowerBoost bucket replenishment (the time it takes for the customer to be able to experience another burst) occurs at the rate of the customer's provisioned speed. For Download PowerBoost this is best estimated to be about 13 seconds for 6Mbps customers, and about 20 seconds for 8Mbps. For Upload PowerBoost this is best estimated to be about 1.7 minutes for both 6Mbps/384Kbps and 8Mbps/768Kbps upstream.

    This is calculated by converting the bucket size to Megabits instead of MegaBytes, and then dividing it by provisioned speed.

    80Mb / 6Mbps ≈ 13.333 sec.

    160Mb

    (8Mbps/768Kbps customers)


    160Mb / 8Mbps = 20 sec.

    * These are best case estimates and actual times may vary.

    I was reading that upload powerboost was being rolled out now and should be available to all areas by May7th. Some people over on Dslreports forums are reporting over 2megs bursting for upload.. hell I haven't even seen download bursting yet!????!?! I called and get told yeah you should have it. but I don't and then they ask did you download the software!?!? I'm like WTF!? your site says I don't have to download software I think they pick up any stupid freak off the street and put them in a tech support chair.. I can't believe these people. One guy I got connected to couldn't even speak a lick of english!



    there is my most recent test once I was able to even get upload to work half way decent cause of this new upgrade.. I just want some stable freakin internet for longer than a month please...thats all I ask for!!!!
