More than three times faster Internet service for no additional cost? Yes, please!
Charter Communications is building up some good will for itself in the St. Louis area, or so it would seem. Several Charter customers report having their base broadband service increased from 30Mbps to 100Mbps this week for free. It's not clear if Charter intends to roll out the same speed upgrade to other parts of the country (a forum users says it's limited to St. Louis), but as far as St. Louis goes, this appears to be a planned speed bump.
Well this is refreshing. Charter took note of a study conducted earlier this year in which it was predicted that the number of devices connected to IP networks will double the global population in 2015, and used that as a springboard to announce faster service tiers for all but its most basic broadband package, and at no additional cost to the end user.
