I think that they increased the speed on some of the plans, like us.  We are on 10g @4mbs

I think they probably have upgraded their backhaul, and able to speed up majorly to all connections. However pretty soon we should get 25Mbps on the higher tier and the lower plans should gradually get the next speed bump too!

Just the past couple of days I've noticed my speed's increased, too.  I'm getting 4.6Mbps on a 4Mbps plan, so I'm happy Smile.

I'm with chiefie - I think this is a backhaul upgrade in preparation for their general increase in plan speeds.  Looks like they've learnt from the last time they did speed upgrades.  I remember last time they promised speed upgrades, there was a major lag between them announcing the new speeds and customers actually getting them.  Looks like it's the other way around this time Smile.

I've been wondering the same thing - since last week I've been utilizing a nice 5-6mbit connection.
