Charter Boosts Speeds

In markets where Charter Communications has deployed DOCSIS 3.0 technology, about 95 percent of its service area, the company is increasing Charter Internet Express download speeds from 12 Mbps to up to 15 Mbps, and increasing upload speeds from 1 Mbps to up to 3 Mbps.

"Charter Internet Plus" download speeds are being increased from 18 Mbps to up to 30 Mbps, and upload speeds are being increased from 2 Mbps to up to 4 Mbps.

Those changes are being made with no increase in cost. In 2010, for example, cable companies outgained telcos about two to one for net additions (new customers less departing customers). 2010 net broadband additions

The speed boosts are the cable company's fourth speed increase in the last three years.
