Default Ungodly fast internet

Has anyone else experienced an extreme jump in bandwidth with Comcast? I went from topping out at 215k/sec to over 500k/sec on some sites. I was upset because a web page was loading slow so I thought I should check my b/w and the following came up. And no its not cache, I forced a refresh and even went to some I've never been on. Check out the pics:






Boy I really hope this lasts, the $40 a month would really be worth it

Doc, Comcast just boosted (doubled) my transfer speeds in a scheduled system upgrade with no upcharges last month. Your area may have 'suffered' from this too

I took a look at the archive at DSLReports.com

I'm pleased (and surprised) that my ISP "Eastlink" is ranked #9
