With Vierizon's FiOS internet service offering speeds up to 300mbps down, Comcast has been struggling to keep up. But just recently, for those of you who live in the Northeast, Comcast has sped up their service to 305mbps (for a matching price, of course). The fastest speed from FiOS, which is 300/65mbps up/down (respectively), is available for $209.99 per month on contract. Comcast's fastest speed, which is 305/65mbps up/down (respectively), costs $300 per month. No word on whether or not Comcast's bandwidth cap is still in effect. Also changed speed-wise are a couple of Comcast's other tiers, including the 25mbps "Blast" tier which has been doubled to 50mbps, and their 50mbps "Extreme" tier to 105mbps. It looks like this is only in the Northeast so far, though, and there's no word on when the rest of us will be getting it.
