Got an email from Charter yesterday and almost deleted it without downloading it but didn't and got around to reading it this morning.
This is part of the email:

DOUBLED UPLOAD SPEEDS - Now 2X Faster!
FASTER DOWNLOADS - Now with PowerBoost(R)
To take advantage of faster downloads with
PowerBoost(R) simply reset your modem:
1. Unplug the cable modem power cord
2. Wait 30 seconds
3. Plug the modem power cord back in ? and go!
I was a little skeptical but gave it a try and yes, sometimes you do get something for nothing. It did double both my upload and download speeds.
You can check your speeds here: Speedtest.net - The Global Broadband Speed Test
