Bright House Networks has launched “PowerBoost” in Indiana. Like Comcast and other cable operators, Bright House Networks is offering its Road Runner Turbo customers the opportunity to temporarily turbo charge the speeds of their broadband services for no additional charge.

With PowerBoost, Bright House customers in Indiana will experience increasing download speeds while downloading large files from the Internet pending available network capacity.

Road Runner Turbo customers with a current speed of up to 15 Mbps will now enjoy PowerBoost speeds of up to 22 Mbps. And once a PowerBoost is completed, a download in progress will continue at a normal speed.

Bright House said that no file downloads are required for activation. The PowerBoost technology works with compatible cable modems, as well as home networking gateways and voice eMTAs.

Bright House Networks is the nation’s sixth-largest cable operator and is jointly owned by Time Warner and Advance/Newhouse.
