Attn Triangle Road Runner Customers:
Unplug the electricity from your cable modem for 1-2 minutes and plug it back in to get MUCH faster speeds. They just recently announced new speeds (without additional cost) but the only way you'll get them is by power cycling your cable modem! Speed upgrade will depend on your current service level.
If you want to see how much faster things are go to http://www.speedtest.net/ run a test before and after the power cycle.
