Although isnt the 30meg just a sofrware change anyway?
"Although isnt the 30meg just a sofrware change anyway? Pretty sure the modem I have can go upto 50meg anyway (if not beyond)."
that depends on your modem they installed , if it's the old doc2 as is the case for most users although some are probably still on the older kit even today, then that DS2 can technically go above that.
however with that old DS2 VM choose not to allow that config file , if you now have the shiny curvy DS3 CM however then yes its just a remote config sent to you after they update your computer account (takes around 2 minutes at best, days when they screw it up).
all told if your getting a new install make sure you get the DS3 today and your all set for everything from the lowest to the highest 100Mbit, even the 200Mbit if they ever get around to that config in the future.
as a sade note will someone with the 30Mbit activated, PLEASE tell us what the actual real
UPLOAD rate as set in your modem is set to ? that info is here
under the "Primary Upstream Service Flow" options Max Traffic Rate :=
