The following shows current plans and what new MAXX plans they are automatically transformed into, for the same price. Early on there also may be reduced promotional rates for limited periods, especially for new customers.
Turbo -> Ultimate 100, for $10 over Standard (new Ultimate 50).
Extreme -> Ultimate 200, for $20 over Standard
Ultimate -> Ultimate 300, for $30 (I think) over Standard
Don't forget the new MAXX speeds require an appropriate modem to get those speeds.
Although my area is probably among the last to get upgraded (i.e. still hasn't happened yet), I'm still trying to decide whether to drop my current Extreme service (30/5) back to Ultimate 50 (50/5) after the upgrade kicks in, and save $20/month. My current Netgear CMD31T will support Ultimate 50, so I have no equipment upgrade cost but will see my download speeds increase from 30 to 50 while saving $20/month.
Or, I already have purchased a new SB6141 modem but that will only support the new Ultimate 100, so I can go that route and improve from 30 to 100 download, 5 to 10 upload, and save $10/month by dropping from the auto-upgraded Ultimate 200 (which my modem won't support) down to Ultimate 100.
