The service offers 50 Mbps downstream and 10 Mbps up, but will set you back $139.95 a month. A still speedy Ultra connection is a bit easier on the wallet at $62.95 per month; it offers up to 22 Mbps down and 5 Mbps up. For those content to meander along the information superhighway (and maybe avoid Comcast’s cap), Comcast is also doubling the speeds of its lower-tier customers to 12 Mbps down and 2 Mbps up. My 7 Mbps Road Runner is looking awfully pokey right now.
