Speed increase?

I have been on Rogers Extreme for a number of years now, with a Motorola SB5100 Modem. Whenever I have tried Rogers SpeedCheck I have consistently gotten 10Mbps down, 1Mbps up. I assume there was a profile cap limiting my download speed.

Now, when I ran the tests this week I am consistently getting 17-18Mbps down and 1Mbps up. It seems like they have changed my profile.

Maybe Rogers is planning to raise the "Extreme" download speed?

Looks like Express is up as well. On the Rogers site I got 18 down, 0.5 up. On other sites, the download speed was not quite as high.

Express is supposed to be 10/0.5 and that's what I had until this recent check. I haven't checked in several months though, probably.
Are the tests really based on average speed (speakeasy and Rogers). When I look at the display during the tests, it's the last reading that's posted, not the average.

For example, it may start at 30 and end around 17-18. For my uploads it may start at 0.300 and end up at 0.500... The speakeasy download speeds aren't as high as Rogers, often ending as low as 10-12 (Express)
This thread is about the speed increase at Rogers. Mention of what the Caps are, is acceptable. But, please do not discuss the Caps issue here (how you're disappointed, how it's a ripoff, etc). There are already plenty of threads on that topic. Future posts primarily discussing Caps instead of speed will be deleted.
