I was on the old Ultimate that was 75/2 which moved up to 150/10 but I never upgraded my modem (I had the SMC gateway in bridge mode and an Asus RT-N16 router) and I was paying about $100/month rather than $125. But it seemed like they did up some of my speed as when I ran tests at speedtest.net I would get, at best, about 120/10. So they seemed to upgrade my upload speed but I am not sure about my download speed given the uncertainly introduced by speedboost. But I guess I will see when I get the new modem hooked up.

SmallNetBuilder does a good job on routers - here is a chart of WAN/LAN throughput for various routers. (This may only show more current routers, not modesl that were sold several years ago that many of us may still be using) http://www.smallnetbuilder.com/lanwa...task=archiveon
