It looks like Charter Communications has enabled 8 channel bonding and 100Mbps service for the greater St. Louis area tonight, confirming rumors seen over at DSL Reports by user Stevestebo on May 20th, 2014. Our residential connection of 30Mbps down and 4Mbps up service just jumped up to 100Mbps down and 4Mbps up after we restarted out cable modem tonight at home:
This is a pretty nice increase for free, so if you are in the St. Louis area you might want to power cycle your DOCSIS 3.0 cable model and see if you can get the new 100Mbps service with a speed test. We aren’t sure how the Charter Ultra 100 users feel about this, but they are getting bumped up to 120Mbps down for the time being with more speed improvements in the planning stages for the high-end users. Right now the base internet speeds for charter residential customers in the St. Louis area just got a ton faster! The official Charter Spectrum rollout is June 16th, but we’ll take it a week early!
