    I can just see the bill if it were from Time Warner. Probably $100 a month just for internet.

    It wouldn't surprise me to see the Extreme plan around that price.

    When I called them to cancel service, they gave us a bunch of premium channels, DVR and Blast for $80 less than we were paying. It's only for a year, but that buys me time to explore other options. Here's a speed test over wifi

    That doesn't look right.. I've got Blast 16/2 now not 16/1

    and they will bump me up to 20/4 with this increase and no price rise? I'll go with that just fine but I'm curious to what the Extreme 50 will cost..if its 65$ I might go with it..but anything over that is too much.

    So will I need a Docsis 3.0 modem now? I currently have a Motorola 51xx surfboard.

    yes modems will likely have to be switched out. This pretty much goes with Motorola releasing a year or so ago the SB6120 so be expecting to upgrade to take advantage of it. I'll buy one as soon as they go for sale to prepare myself for arguing with comcast tech support about why I'm not seeing the 20/4 I should

    I'll be waiting for a sale too. I'm sure I'll need it when FIOS is available. Most of the town has it but our section, thanks to red tape, and free perks Comcast is heaping on our municipality.

    doesn't appear to be much of a upgrade then but as long as they don't fool with the fee I guess it will be ok. I'd rather have that 50/5 for 65$ that sounds about right IMO.

    Considering other ISPs charge a lot more for 50mbps down I dont think you'll see it for that price. Would be awesome if you did though.

    It'll go up after they test it I'm sure. They tend to keep a large bandwidth buffer. It would be cool if they allowed you to choose a higher upload like 20/10

    whats bad is they give you more speed but have a cap.. lol if you ever utilized those speeds you would hit the cap in a matter of a few hours or less.

    If they roll out DOCS3.0 they should raise their caps by at least 100Gigs

    11 and a half hours at 50mbps.

    But what in the hell would someone be doing downloading 250 Gigabytes in that amount of time for?

    Faster speeds just means less waiting for stuff to finish.

    hard to say what you'd be doing but at least you'd be able to do whatever that fast without worrying about a cap

    I could kill the cap now, if I tried, but I don't have to worry about it.

    For someone to worry about the cap they have to be downloading tons of crap on a regular basis.
