That link is for "Greater Louisiana". The New Orleans version of the site still lists the old values. I'll have to check when I get home. I have premier, and would greatly like the switch to 50d/10u instead of 25d/2.5u. I can't speak for others but I surely will saturate as much pipe as they give me.

I'd go blind and get right-hand carpal tunnel with those speeds.



It's not like you will ever actually see that speed.

Cox had the hamsters working overtime last night. I was getting 30Mbps on speed test last night.

You're getting that with the starter tier? I have preferred and this is what I'm getting.

I normally get this with the premier tier. I'll test again when I get home.

Well, you would but Cox isn't telling you that you are still limited to the bandwidth being pushed out at the other end of your link. Cox speed doesn't matter if the guy sending you the information is throttled back.

So I'm not tech savvy.

If I do speedtest app from my phone and am paying for the premier I should be seeing 63MBPS?
Upload?

re: So Cox has increased maximum speeds for all internet choices (Link)
I just checked my premier in Southdowns. Late at night, I used to be able to hit 35-37/12. Today, after the upgrade, I got 25/10. No change for me

Just checked again, and it was 23/6.
One more time showed 31/10. I dunno if my phone is N-capable, but I can regularly get 45+Mb/s on 4G lte

I have a docsis 3 also. I get double those speeds on 4G on my phone

Hasn't changed at my house 2 miles from LSU. Probably 15% of the people in this neighborhood are younger people so no gaming all day or massive torrent downloads

Depends on what 802.11 protocol and what freq your phone supports.
