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?

I'm on extreme plus (25Mbps) and have definitely been getting higher speed tests, but I don't think actual performance has increased.
