PowerBoost is only available with Comcast’s 6Mbps/8Mbps speed plans. Maximum upload speeds of 384Kbps/768Kbps depending on service plan. PowerBoost works by temporarily providing brief bursts of download connection speed above the provisioned 6Mbps or 8Mbps download speed for the first 10MB or 20MB of a file download respectively. It then reverts to your provisioned speed for the remainder of the download. Many factors affect speed. Actual speeds will vary and are not guaranteed. Features and services subject to change.
