On comcast gigabit plan for a couple months but family didn't notice difference vs the 150 /20 plan previously.
So I swapped out the rental gateway cgm4140com for my own SBV3202 but now seeing 400/5. Modem status @ 192.168.100.1 shows only 4 channels up which cant be helping the slow upload speeds.
Any way to get better upload speeds? Anything over 150 for download is not needed.
This should give you an idea of what is theoretically possible:
Modem status @ 192.168.100.1 shows only 4 channels up
FWIW, that's normal because Comcast only offers up to 4 upstream channels. Some market areas still have only 3.
And you'll never get gig speed with an SBV3202. It is DOCSIS 3.0. You need a DOCSIS 3.1 capable device to get gig speed. A 3.0 device will default to using a slower speed tier configuration file even if you are subscribed to gig.
the dslreports link helps but the comcast rep I am chatting with tells me the Extreme 250 plan would have upload of 10Mps. But hey, that is about a 40% improvement for what I have now.
Also, why is it impossible to see the possible plans from xfinity.com when logged into my account? Seems like they only show more expensive options - grrrrr.
