I am wondering if we are going to get a bandwidth boost, or at least a price cut.

Roadrunner has been ripping us off for a long long time. A Measly 50kbs upload.

Download Speed: 3513 kbps (439.1 KB/sec transfer rate)
Upload Speed: 368 kbps (46 KB/sec transfer rate)

Lame, i have downloaded torrents at over 600kb/s, and higher...

I hope they price cut us lol..
i know comcast bought out adelphia, as we used to have adelphia

I read somewhere that comcast gave out such dramatic speed increases to areas where verizon fios was available, to keep in competition. because if you dont know what fios is, its like a 50mbs connection.

to areas where there is no fios, we keep the speeds we've had
