Comcast is increasing the speed for internet users at no additional cost. The base package (silver) will be be upgraded from 3000/264 to 4300/384, and people paying the extra $10 add on tier (gold) will be upgraded from 4000/384 to 6600/768. To actually receive the update (config file), you will have to recycle your modem (turn off for 30 seconds - 1 minute), though there won't be any way to determine before hand if you've received it. To test your modem speed, here is a very reliable site (download the largest file). http://www.dslreports.com/stest?more=1 I've included a link to more information and to see if people in your area receive it. Also below is an unofficial list of cities that get the upgrade on 01/26/2005: http://www.dslreports.com/forum/rem...94503~mode=flat Baltimore Albuquerque Chesapeake Bay Chesterfield Dallas Delmar Pittsburgh (including Elyria and Tri-State) Richmond Boston Connecticut North New Jersey South New Jersey PA Metro and West Detroit Indianappolis Kansas City Fort Wayne Flint Augusta Charleston Chattanooga Dallas (GA) East Tennessee Hattiesburg Huntsville Jacksonville Lake County Little Rock Medridian Miami Mobile Nashville Paducah Panama City Savannah Tallahassee Tuscaloosa Sarasota Portland As well as the existing trial markets: Washington DC Knoxville Naples (I saw this on another site and I did get the increase already) so test your Up and Download Speed first then recycle the modem and test again to see if you have been upgraded!!
