I just received a message from TimeWarner that they are going to be increasing my downstream speed from up to 3 mb to up to 5 mb.

This is suppose to happen on Feb. 1st

Are other services doing the same and will I really see a difference?

Comcast upped our throughput a year or two ago, and there are rumors that they're going to do it again.  

Running some of the online speed tests, both before and after the upgrade, I actually did see some improvement in the amount of data that could be pushed.  

But in day to day use, it didn't make one bit of difference.   Not that I'm complaining about a 3MB downstream of course. ..

BP,

I got that email too.  I have to call to get my cable modem replaced.  Not a big deal.  I doubt I'll notice that much difference, but it's nice to have I guess.

Do you people not download a lot?  I download around 10 gigs a week at least and I would love to have 5mb down.  

Currently have comcast which is 3mb down, but very consistent.

Seriously though, I think Comcast will be upping the dl to 5mb within the year in the major markets.  I already have the option (for $10 more) to add 1mb to my 3mb connection, although I question how cost effective that is.

LOL.  No porn here.  I'm getting married in April, no need for it.  Plus, it's degrading to women and wrong (but thats a topic for another day).

Mainly TV Shows and movies though.

I just got my new speed boost a few days ago...

Averaging 660kb/sec now. Not too shabby!

Graham,

Yea I have the digital phone and all it said was that I need to reset the modem on Feb 1st.

Can't complain too much but if I remember I think Korea or Japan or both are all up to 10 mb down on average.

We'll catch up at some point  biggrin

Just got an email from Comcast that my speed has gone from 3M to 4M downloading and 384K upload.

If you're in Oregon it's a done deal - unplug your modem for 60 seconds, then plug it back in and start downloading those really huge files  biggrin
