Time Warner "wide band" internet?

I've seen TWC advertise a 30Mbps and a 50Mbps speeds, just curious if anyone has experience with either of these yet, if you're actually getting those speeds, and how much it's costing each month?

Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel, "Pick up your shovel, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land." Nearly 75 years ago, Roosevelt said,"Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a camel, this is the Promised Land." Now Obama has stolen your shovel..., taxed your asses, raised the price of camels and mortgaged the Promised Land!

I have (had) it. You will get exactly what they claim. It's fast, ridiculously fast. And in retrospect, too fast. I really didnt need to download at 4megabytes a second. I could download 60gb torrents in 20 minutes. I really did it for the upload. I dropped from the 30mb to the base 7mb speed and saved 25 a month. I think my bill was 189 with the high end hd channel package. The best thing is how much transfer you have. I could be uploading at 800kb/s and downloading at 3000-4000kb/s while streaming hd video on netflix on my xbox and browsing the net on my Evo and not even notice. Both the 30 and 50 have the same upload, so the 30 is the best option imho.

is this just something that you'd have to call about and they'd do it on their end? or is it different equipment?

It's different equipment that (for now) TWC must provide. It's DOCSIS 3.0 if you want to learn more about the technology behind it.
