Yup. Just tested it. They just did it, no signup or anything. Got the message in an email. Rebooted the cable modem, and it was faster.

Comcast really sucked when they took over AT&T cable here awhile back. Since then, they've really been trying hard to improve service.

Went up from 256 to 384. I can live with that. They say it'* capped, but I've acheived almost 500k/sec upload in the past.
