Hi All,

I'm about to change from DSL to cable internet and I notice that Comcast/Xfinity is offering 5 speeds plans.

20Mbps
6Mbps
30Mbps
50Mbps
105Mbps

I play such games as City of heroes and Star Trek online and I was wondering what speed I should get. Comcast/Xfinity recommend 50 but I just want to make sure this is not a way they trying to make money when I can possibility go with a lower speed at a lower price. Any help you can give will be a great help. Thanks, Phillip

What is the upload for each of those plans? That is what is important in video gaming.
