To counter AT&T’s 10 Mbps service in the San Francisco bay area, Comcast has increased their broadband download speeds to 16 Mbps. The corresponding upload speed will be raised to 2 Mbps. The new service is branded as Blast! Triple play customers will pay an extra $10/month for Blast. Existing cable customers will pay $52.95/month and stand alone Blast customers will pay $66.95. One drawback to the new service is it is not supported by home wireless routers using 802.11b.
