I upgraded to the 10MB tier last year but saw only a small speed increase. In fact, I was only getting 4MB at my primary computer. I did upgrade my cable modem to one that was 10MB compatible.
A few months ago I had reason to suspect my Linksys router might be the problem. It was supposed to be able to handle higher speeds. I swapped it out for a D-Link router that gave rave reviews and BANG! everything got faster. I now get 10.7MB to my primary computer. I was surprised that a router would make that much difference.
