My Xfinity statement and the Xfinity website indicate that I'm paying for 70 Mbps service:
"Internet: PERFORMANCE INTERNET Your Plan: Internet 70 Mbps"
However, the Xfinity speed test consistently maxes out at a download speed of 15 Mbps. This is over a direct-wired connection to the modem and has been consistent over several weeks, and across different days/times/devices. It always runs right up to 15, and then stops.
My (owned) modem, an SB6141, shows a configuration file being loaded:
"SW Download INIT - Via Config file d11_m_sb6141_priceforlife12_c01.cm"
without any errors. Is it possible that this configuration file is limiting my download speeds? I was certainly hoping that "price for life" did not mean "no speed increases for life." The billing statements seem to confirm that I should be able to expect higher speeds.
I am not interested in purchasing a higher-speed plan, but would like to be able to take advantage of the full bandwidth on the current plan.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I've been here for 17 years and I have never ever seen a config / bootfile with that naming convention before.... I have no idea what speed tier that this corresponds to.... I know that this comment doesn't help you but I felt that I had to mention it.....
Comcast. The eternal mystery....
Glad you got it sorted out !! Now closing this thread.
