Anyone see the new At&T cable commercial with some "Ultra" service?

I saw a commercial earlier today where At&T is now advertising different plans for cable modems. I looked on their site but there is nothing there. Any one have any info on this? I'd like it if they had a plan that increased the upload speed and removed port blocks so I could run servers on it, but I doubt thats an option.

that wouldn't be a bad deal. and you can host a webserver or dns server on cable. all ya have to do is set up a router to do it. it didn't mention the upload speeds. 384k wouldn't be too bad.. thats about 35-40k uploads. plus that isn't much more than i'm paying now with 5 static ips.. and if they threw the ips in with it... i'd be the first to have it!

Unless they have a 512 bps or better upload, its useless to me. But I bet they wont increase the upload speeds. I hope they prove me wrong.

And if its anything like the current setup, your download speed will be horrible if you are uploading at the same time. Thats not a good situation when running a busy server.

I wish someone would make really high speed connections affordable, like 2mbs both directions or better.

8000ft or closer to the CO, not very wide spread and to expensive to deploy.

The colo prices I have been quoted is like $600-800/mo for a 1MB connection in 1/2 rack. I currently pay $200 for a 1.1MB. Unless you know of some real cheap colos with no bandwidth restrictions, gonna have to stay with the $200/month.
