Release Date: 12/17/2012

New York, NY – As a thank you to customers of Time Warner Cable’s most popular Internet service, the company is boosting the maximum download speed for Standard Internet by 50-percent this month, from 10 Mbps to 15 Mbps. The faster speeds are being launched to Standard Internet customers throughout Time Warner Cable’s service area.

"Today's announcement is yet another example of our commitment to continually improve the services we offer," said Rob Marcus, President and COO of Time Warner Cable. “Boosting download speed by 50% provides our Standard Internet subscribers with even greater value and the ability to enjoy what they love most about the Internet even better.”

Standard Internet customers will receive the faster speeds automatically this month, but can upgrade immediately by pushing the “Reset” button on their modems, or if it doesn’t have a reset button, by unplugging the power cord from the modem for 10 seconds, plugging it back in and then rebooting their computer.
