Comcast Bandwidth Tier Increases

"As Comcast has worked on pushing DOCSIS 3.0 upgrades and the new Xfinity product branding across their markets, they continue to tinker with and tweak the speed tiers offered in order to find the sweet spot... DOCSIS 3.0 upgrades continue, and that Comcast expects to be able to offer their top of the line 105 Mbps tier in about half of their markets by the middle of this year."

Economy - 1.5 Mbps downstream, 384 kbps upstream
Economy Plus - 3 Mbps downstream, 768kbps upstream
Performance Starter - 6 Mbps downstream, 1 Mbps upstream
Performance - 15 Mbps downstream, 2 Mbps upstream
Blast - 25 Mbps downstream, 4 Mbps upstream
Extreme - 50 Mbps downstream, 10 Mbps upstream
Extreme 105 - 105 Mbps downstream, 20 Mbps upstream

  1. That's why I don't have Comcast service even though they are in in my area. First off, as a DISH Network customer and employee I can take advantage of the best prices for TV in the entire industry, including HD Free for Life for qualifying customers. Second, my internet is insanely fast already through my telephone company. And third, I don't have to deal with Comcast and it's reputation for horrible customer service. In fact, DISH Network is currently rated #1 in customer satisfaction amongst all cable and satellite TV providers, according to the ACSI. I highly suggest checking DISH out.
