    Default Road Runner Speed Increase?

    I know someone in Puna who has 5 Mbps standard Road Runner service. He recently did some speed tests which showed a significant increase in speeds (to 7-10Mbps). Iím still waiting for someone else I know with Road Runner to corroborate this.As that person I know in Puna used to have Road Runner Turbo service (8Mbps). He had gotten downgraded to standard Road Runner service a few months ago when he did a an unrelated change to his account (Oceanic had suspended offering Road Runner Turbo to the neighbor islands due to lack of bandwidth).

    I figured out why the speeds are so high.Road Runner is using power boost which skews your speed test results

    I am getting faster speed results lately too. I have heard of improvements but they haven't personally notified me of any speed increases to my account. It does seem faster at times though.

    I've not noticed a speed increase, but a connection decrease, which may be due to my old computer...

    Roadrunner is blazing tonight. I know speed tests are deceiving but tonight I'm getting 17Mbps compared to 9Mbps last week.

    I paid the extra $10 a month for road runner turbo and it made a HUGE DIFFERENCE on my xbox live gaming. Didn't see much of a difference tho on desktop web surfing though, but for the extra speed boost on xbox live, for me it was worth it.
