VZ vs Comcast

Verizon just sent me a letter indicating that FIOS service is
now available in my chunk of Waltham.

I like the idea of more cheap bandwidth, but I dislike Verizon.
(Not that I'm enchanted with Comcast, but they have done a
decent job of providing bandwidth and staying out of my way.)

So I called up Comcast and asked if they could match VZ's offer
in any way.

After almost 15 minutes on hold, a Comcast rep told me that they
were rolling out 16Mb/s service to Waltham as a free upgrade,
but she had no timeline for my neighborhood. She affirmed that
at least some parts of Waltham had this already.

Any Comcast subscribers seeing 16Mb/s downloads?
