Comcast expected to raise broadband speeds

According to CNet, Comcast is going to raise broadband speeds to 4 mbps down and 384 kbps up. Really, I could care less about the 4 mbps down – 3 mbps is plenty fast for me. But I’d love more upload speed. Sending videos or uploading content is a massive pain at 256. Or hosting xbox games. …
