Time Warner Cable will raise download speeds on its Road Runner broadband service next month by 67 percent, becoming the latest cable network to further open bandwidth for its customers.

Road Runner said Tuesday that it will boost the download speed for its basic subscribers, who pay $45 a month, from 3mbps to 5mbps. Its premium customers, who pay $84.95 a month, will get a boost from 6mbps to 8mbps.

OOL is also not a national service. So they can get away with that, figures as soon as I moved out of NY they offered it where I lived.

And I pay $72.95/mo currently with Comcrap for 5 down 384 up. With a $10 a month charge for the extra 1/128 which Comcrap is supposedly going to give away free now to. Nice eh?

In Belgium, we pay 45 ? (about 55 $) for a 3.3 Mbps/192Kbits... I know, its a rip-of, but thats what monopolies lead to, rite?

Can't say I ever used all my 3mbps as it was, like others have said upload is what needs increasing. Anyone know what RR upload is at the moment? 384 or 256 kbps?
