I'd be curious to know how many of the people that got the speed boost also got a data cap, lol
Back when I was in Washington Comcast happily doubled my speeds but then started enforcing the data cap.
With Cox now and have the same cap. I haven't hit it but largely because I'm trying not to. Ideally I'd love to have a backup server back at my parents place in Washington or friends place somewhere else in the country but the data caps kind of put a damper on the initial backup and while snail mail is great the setup on their end would take some work.
