I'm certain I heard on WBT this morning that road runner now has an improved road runner turbo speed. I think the ad said it was 16M down, Al Gardner was delivering the ad; of course I know he regularly misspeaks, but this seemed genuine. But I can't find anything about it on Time Warner's site. Does anyone know anything about this?

As a side note, does anyone REALLY get 10Mbps down from TWC? I think the best I have seen is about 7.

(from TWC press release)PowerBoost is FREE with Road Runner Turbo service. It activates automatically when capacity is available.PowerBoost up to 16 Mbps claim is based on Road Runner Turbo's standard maximum download speed of 10 Mbps. Actual speeds may vary. Not all service tiers are available in all areas. Many factors affect speed. Road Runner Turbo with PowerBoost provides a burst of download speed when capacity is available above the customerís provisioned download speeds for the first 10 MB of a file. It then reverts to your provisioned speed for the remainder of the download.
