Comcast's PowerBoost Increase Upstream Capacity

Comcast is deploying the second phase of its "PowerBoost" technology, which will increase customers' upstream capacity to up to 2 Mbps when uploading content such as photos and videos, or e-mailing larger files. The feature is being introduced on a market-by-market basis with completion expected before year's end.

Comcast first introduced the PowerBoost technology in June 2006 for downstream speed boosts. PowerBoost enables customers to download with speeds of up to 12 Mbps or 16 Mbps, depending on their service plan, for no additional charge. PowerBoost technology for downstream speed is now fully deployed across Comcast's national footprint.
