    The SB6141 supports up to 343 Mbps. I wouldn't replace it until you need more performance than it can provide, or it dies.

    Thanks for the quick responses. I haven't been schooled up on all the "channel bonding" and such, so I didn't know if that played into it.

    There's no catch really. Comcrap is scrambling and they see the writing on the wall. They had a monopoly for decades which is now being broke up. This is EXACTLY why Google got in the high-speed internet game years ago was to force these monopolies to improves services with the presence of competition. We're seeing the fruits of this even if it's been over a decade down the road.

    Most have been burned by Comcrap for so long that they don't really care what "please baby, don't go" tactics they try to apply once there's another option. I fit this category as well. Screw these hosers.

    Your plan is most likely 5Mbps up. This is most of them and you have to get to the plan similar to what I described I was on previously to see that upload speed increased to 15Mbps.

    FWIW, most of the municipal high-speed internet plans start at 1,000Mbps/1,000Mbps (symmetrical) for around $60-$70/mo and some will include TV channels for that price too. Comcrap will try to get people signed in to plans at that dollar rate or less so when the other options come around the average consumer will look only at price and decide it's not worth the effort. That's the strategy anyway. In many areas people are more savvy than that now and jumping the sinking ship at the first chance they get.
    Yup. I'm in Longmont, gig speed for $50/month for life. No TV, but I don't care about that. Glad to be rid of Comcast.

    Bill went from $87 to $35 (Performance Select, 100MBpS, one year commitment - got rid of the service protection plan too).

    15 minutes later, speedtest.net: 120 down, 6 up.

    Depending on density in your service area, a 6141 might only actually deliver half its max, so you're capable of 300+ Mbps, and likely able to sustain about 65% of that rate. So, good to 200Mbps tier without upgrade.

    I hate you.

    Is there any data use cap on that?

    I had to spend a few frustrating minutes on the phone with retention today, and while my bill hasn't gone down, it only went up $10 to get to an unlimited data cap plan which is really what I was after.

    Oddly, they offered less per month fee for the unlimited data cap plan if renting their modem than keeping my own. I simply could not get them to budge on the $50/month fee without using their modem. I'm also going to be monitoring my speed more often to ensure they're not playing tricks due to the unlimited data.

    The push to using their hardware is that then they can provision it to have one of their Xfinity hotspots for other customers to use that are close enough to get your Wi-Fi broadcast.

    I specifically asked if I could disable the WiFi. I have my own AP's. She said yes.

    So was I lied to?

    I may just see what happens if I leave my modem in place. Otherwise, I'll be having another chat with someone higher up the food chain.

    That said, we're in a neighborhood that isn't likely to see any hotspot traffic unless it's a drive by.
