Faster RoadRunner?!

I read this page, went home and tried it. According to, my speed after rebooting my cable modem (3.2 Mbps) was way faster than before (1.4 Mbps). A coworkers went from 2.9 to 4.8. Awesome. Anyone else? Post here.

    20.7 at work – wish I had that at home.

    I don’t have RR, but my cable modem has always been around ~3.5-4.8 Mbps and i’ve been with the same provider for going on six years.

    We just reset. 1.7 > 3.4

    RoadRunner really wants people to know…yesterday I got a letter in the mail telling me about this.

    I don’t download large files much anymore…I don’t think I could tell the difference web browsing between 1Mb and 5. It’s nice when I want to download a large file, but that’s seldom…I wish RR would come out with a cheaper version that was 1/3 the speed.

    I don’t want dsl…:-D…I have VoIP phone service and don’t want to rely on Bellsouth for anything. But, you’re right, they do have slower service, but it’s $10/month less and WAY slower (where we are anyway).

    D-SLAM. I always thought that was funny. 😀

    D-SLAM! – I think Derek has a new nickname

    You don’t want to be around after a D-SLAM. Light a match will ya.

    2.3Mb ->> 3.4 Mb download

    without that speed boost, there are fewer reasons for cable over dsl i know of… for me dsl was never an option because it was so much slower than cable (1.5 vs 3-4.5). if i were RR, i’d want people to know too!

  12. Josh Creason says:

    seems like dsl offers different packages based on needs such as that…

    Plus Bellsouth couldnt get you hooked up to a DSLAM in a timely manner if their life depended on it. After fighting with them for almost 6 months, we canceled all of our telco services.
