We're stuck paying $390/month for 35 down 5 up for our office with Time Warner Business Class.
We are only interested in upload speed improvements and 5 up is the best our area has to offer.

As long as they're not talking $250 a month once 2 years is up, I'm game.
What really gets me though, is not the speed, but the price for such speeds. Like, 390$/month for 35 / 5 is really poor. The second example being a bit better but still. I wonder when this actually improves.
I still kind of think these numbers got to be trolling
I mean, I have 1Gbps optic fiber ( uncapped, just for myself, 99% up time ) that is 120-127 down and 10 up. The upload kind of suck, but increasing the upload to say 50 or 100 for a few bucks shouldnt be an issue if needed ( just give it a call ). The price is 15$/month and you get a Cable / WiFi router modem. If in package with TV, it all cost about 45$ and you get 117 TV Channels from which quite a few are in High Definition + a high end set-top-box with a 250 WD HDD.....
I dont know, really
We almost take this for granted around here. Pretty much the first couple of months the speeds were unstable due to overload, because too many people ordered the new package, lol.
