    Lightbulb Comcast to raise broadband speeds

    The nation's largest cable company and broadband provider will raise its current speed of up to 3mbps (megabits per second) downstream and 256kbps (kilobits per second) upstream to 4mbps and 384kbps, respectively, at no additional cost. Comcast will also offer its more expensive 4mbps customers a 50 percent increase to 6mbps downstream and 768kbps upstream, the sources said.

    Try using Cablenut. Without Calenut my upload is only half of 384 kbps, after using Cablenut it's close to 100%.

    I'm renting my cable modem from Comcast.Are all cable modems the same?I'm going to buy my own also,for $79 it may be worth the $3/mo. savings.
