It seems since Google anounced that it plans to deploy fiber internet in Charlotte NC that TWC is scrambling to keep customers. They are increasing all speed class for no extra charge. The base speed, now 15 mbps now becomes 50 mbps and top rate of 50 mbps becomes 300 mbps. And to think at&t is sueing to keep base rate for government assisted deployment at 2 mbps rather than raising it to 10 mbps.

I got bumped up to 50Mbps from 25 mbps in Portland for the same reason even though Goggle still hasn't made a decision.

I have seen several free bumps where I live in last 10 years with no rate increase. It started at 2mb/sec on cable which was awesome in rural area I live 10 years ago and it has worked its way up to 15mb/sec now. Waiting for next free jump. DSL became available only a few years ago out here. They went thru a lot of effort and expensive to hook me up back then too. They had to use a track mounted directional boring machine to get a conduit under the road and then ditched/buried a cable 300 feet to house. It took them many years of my service to pay for that.
