It would be nice if they'd do this in my area but since Google fiber isn't moving into the DFW area they've got no incentive.

Wonder if they're doing this in my part of NC. I hope so.

My comcast just tripled the speed here recently, I get 122/12

It was like 40/8 or something

Goes to show how much of a difference a single company can make. If it weren't for Google Fiber, none of you would be getting speed boosts.

Just checked Cox's site and apparently they're doubling the speeds in my area pretty soon. Guess it's time to quit tethering my phone and actually order internet service.

What! I have TWC in SoCal and I'm barely 15/1! I assume they are doing that for free? I should call them.

Couldn't hurt. If you're eligible, they send you a replacement router for free (you just have to ship the old one back). Looks like you would be going to 50/5.

OK, so I just randomly tested my speed for a different topic, and got this result

This is still on the old router though, so it should be faster when the new one gets here soon. But still, this is very nice, better than the OP, that's for sure.
