Don't know about Charter, but Comcast and many other ISPs offer "business class" services in addition to their residential services.
Residential Internet service is usually under provisioned. That is the carriers assume that most people will not be using it very heavily. The other way of looking at it is they advertise more than they can deliver for the price. Business class service is provisioned assuming the customer will actually be using all of the advertised bandwidth. So if you are a "heavy user" you might want to look at the business class offerings rather than switching to a slower technology. It may also come with some other nice things (terms of service that allow you to host servers, a different tech help phone number with native English speakers that can do something, etc.).
