88 down 24 up 10 ping here on Optimum... Nice that they upgraded it without me having to beg for it... My mom has Service Electric and they flat out suck on ping, down and up and still charge her what I am paying for marginally better than DSL at best.
I had Boost Plus before, and they upgraded me for free to Ultra 101. The retention department rep told me all customers who had Boost Plus before the switch are grandfathered in with Ultra 101 at the same price until they cancel.
My speed test came up as
Download : 116.15 Mb/s
Upload : 20.99 Mb/s
You will need to plug the modem into a gigabit ethernet card directly or with a gigabit router to get the full speed on Ultra 101

Had boostplus, but im guessimg they upgraded mine to ultra a while back. Used verizon high speed dsl for years before i decided to smarten up and get cablevision. for $10 more I was literally getting 10x the dl and uploaded speed.
verizon seems to be over rated at where i live, in fact cable had better service than verizon(no dc's from cable compared to verizons 5 minute dc every day and much cheaper.
Here's how it works: if you were *paying* for legacy boost or boost+, you were upgraded/grandfathered into the Ultra101 for the same price. I was paying $15 extra a month for boost+, and therefore I was upgraded to Ultra101 at the same cost:
However, If you had the boost plus promo for free, you didn't get the ultra101 upgrade.
The Ultra50 is still a great deal at $5 extra a month for 50/25
Here are my results, although I've should be getting slightly better on the upload:
