I was in Chicago today and saw Xfinity advertising 505! I'm from the Bay Area and had to jump through hoops to get 105 without a truck roll. I wonder if there is a double speed offer for their market from 105 to something higher?

Some markets have something like 150. However, in my area the 505 is $399/month and you have a high termination fee and high installation fee. At least with 505 you don't have a data cap.

Finally Upgraded

Well the other night a local apartment burned down and we lost power and internet for about 5 hours. When it was restored and after rebooting my router and modem several times, I ran a speed test to verify connection. Much to my surprise my download speed has finally been increased. I live in Scranton, PA





I then turned off my iPhone's data package and ran a speed test on the WiFi on that and got.
ping 39 ms, Download 80.48Mb/s, Upload 11.81 Mb/s

I was amazed that my phone could go that fast on my wireless AC connection.

When first leaked, I tried several times but no luck... Now starting to see Tv commercials here in Northern California saying "double speed is coming soon for two most popular plans". Coincidentally in the past few weeks the cable Tv/internet has gone dead in our whole area a few times, coming back online about 10 minutes later. Rebooted modem but no speed increase. Also noticed my laptop is now finding a new WiFi connection called "xfinitywifi". Probably them taking over leased modem/gateways in nearby houses and turning them into hotspots (as I read about coming soon). Not mine! I own it.
