twc has been upgrading their $$$$$ routers in some areas.
for the last mounth twc has been upgrading 10/1 to 15/1 in some areas.
if you have a DOCSIS 3.0 modem then you are seeing your true speed w/o powerboost.
if you have a DOCSIS 2.0 modem and 10/1 then you are seeing your powerboost speed.
powerboost stays on just long enough to trick the speedtest.

If you see a really good deal buy now, think about it later!!!
there are people that lurk here all day buying just to resell.
make copies of your important store receipts as they fade after a couple of months.
From the diagram it shows, this is only for people with 10mbps internet. Resetting your router will result in 15mbps internet. TWC is great when it works, but I've had several outrages in the couple years I've used it. They always blame power lines and transformers, but I don't think those were the problems.
As far as I know (I work for TWC), this upgrade has only been done in New York areas and Hawaii. Others areas across the country will be upgraded on dates "TBD". It will happen very soon though for most of the rest of the country. Checked with our local tech engineer about this a few days ago.
Current subscribers with the older 15/1 Turbo may remove it at anytime by calling customer service since they will be receiving the upgrade soon anyways (monthly savings of $12.99).
So is everybody being hit by that mistery fee? I was about to complain but since promo price hasn't ended. I have standard but been gettting 25Mbps in speestest since installation more than a year ago.
It's not a mystery fee. They're now charging for the modem. You can avoid it by buying your own modem.
