How much on an increase? When....???

I have recently paid the balances down on three credit cards and I'm wondering how much of a score increase will I receive? The utilization on my three cards went from 209%, 95% and 73% to 0% on all three. I'm also wondering when the increases will kick in and if my utilization on my three remaining cards affect how much score will raise?


I've read the information on credit scoring but I'm still really confused. Hoping someone can help!
