It seems that Mediacom decided to speed things up a little. Early this morning I was able to download around 350kb/sec. Uploads now go at a steady 30kb/sec instead of the usual 14kb/sec. It’s so awesome I didn’t have to wait another 3 days for the upgrade!
I haven’t noticed any troubles with the upgrade yet. Hopefully everything during the upgrade goes smoothly, I don’t want them to take this away for ANY reason!
