[Cerowrt-devel] comcast provisioned rates?

As a non-Comcast-customer, I am curious too.  I had thought their "boost" feature allowed temporary rates *larger* than the quoted "up to" rates.  (but I remember the old TV-diagonal games and disk capacity games, where any way to get a larger number was used in the advertising, since the FTC didn't have a definition that could be applied).
I wonder if some enterprising lawyer might bring the necessary consumer fraud class-action before the FTC to get clear definitions of the numbers? It's probably too much to ask for Comcast to go on the record with a precise definition.

I'm setting up new service in the US, and I'm currently assuming that all of Comcast's rates are "boosted" rates, not the "provisioned" rates.
So if they quote 50/10Mbps, I assume that's not what will need to be set in SQM with CeroWRT.
Does anyone have good info on the "provisioned" rates that go with each of the Comcast tiers?
Basically, I'm trying to get to an apples-to-apples comparison with Sonic.net DSL (I'll be close enough to the CO to run in Annex M "upload priority" mode and get ~18/2 service).
