Re: I wonder
said by baineschile:Same here.And I can't get any info from Comcast on when bonded upstreams will hit my area.
I was in on the D3 upgrades, but I only have 4 bonded channels downstream. I am hoping that areas that were converted will be upgraded even more, so we can get that upstream as well (still only at one stream)

Oh Good! Now they can raise the cap so that people can make use of all that higher speed.
"Net Neutrality" zealots - the people you can thank for your capped Internet service.

Re: Comcast DOCSIS 3.0 Complete?
said by ronus:Why is it always that when someone here disagrees with another forum posted, registered or anon, that they MUST work for the company that are posting in favor of? ... why are some people, such as yourself, so shallow in your thinking that some people just don't agree with your views and can have an opinion and NOT work for the party in which they support?
To everyone reading this: If you click on the "youarestupid" in the post that this is a reply to, you will see that this person is an anonymous poster with no information. This proves that this person is a forum Troll (or they work for Comcast ). You can find the definition for Troll (internet) here:
I have no idea of what the definition of working for Comcast is. Maybe "youarestupid" can enlighten us?
... seriously, when did you drop out of school? This kind of lunacy is what is known as trolling. Your post offers nothing to the topic at all.
Re: Comcast DOCSIS 3.0 Complete? Why is it that some people, such as yourself, can't post a disagreement without using insults such as "shallow", or "... seriously, when did you drop out of school?"? I have no problems with people who post disagreements with what I say. I do take issue when they use childish insults such as the poster whose user name "yourarestupid", which was intended in and of itself to be an insult to me, uses insults in their rebuttal such as "You live in Dallas, GA, you should be grateful you have any service at all". Disagreeing and debating are healthy things. And it's OK for "youarestupid" to disagree with me, but using ludicrous insults in the process shows a lack of respect and intelligence. I believe this person meant their post to be intentionally inflammatory which, by the definition I linked to, would make them a "Troll". By the way, your post offers nothing to the topic at all either.
Re: I am wondering why you mention TWC as deploying D3.0 slowly.
said by NYC26 :well TWC in my are has some 1GHz gear but is mainly 860MHz I think maybe the line amps are 1GHz but the Motorola nodes are 860MHz and the aurora networks nodes are 1GHz. Here TWC uses 24 QAMs for SDV which is plenty.
Shouldn't they upgraded to 1GHZ instead of being on the same problem two years from now. Time Warner here in NYC is 860 too,and they removed 90% of the analog channels and implemented SDV on top of it and the quality of service sucks. They decided to waste bandwidth on gimmicks like star over,and others enhanced digital gimmicks. Of course they don't give a crap about the picture quality of HD channels and the 3/1 compression continue. I am done with these idiots and switching to DirectV since Fios is taking forever to wire my building.
Re: We were one of the first upgraded
said by IowaCowboy:Ip address location does not mean anything it is just where it is registered to by ICANN. My IP address says I am in Kansas but I am actually in Texas. When I got moved to an new Arris C4 CMTS my IP address no longer shows the correct city location when doing speed tests.
Springfield, MA (which is on the Westfield headend) got upgraded around December of 2008. When I first upgraded to D3, I was assigned an IP address that placed me in Longmeadow, which is an affluent suburb of working class Springfield. I once had a virtual presence in millionaire territory. At the time, they only allowed rented modems but I bought a modem and virtual life in suburbia ended as they gave me an IP address that placed me in Springfield. I live near the town lines of Ludlow and Wilbraham but that's Charter's turf (quite frankly I'm glad I have Comcast as I've heard bad things about Charter).
I currently have the Extreme 50 tier on my purchased Arris TM722G EMTA along with my CDV.
Now hopefully Time Warner will upgrade southern Maine to D3 as I would like to get a D3 EMTA for Grandma's house as they perform better even though she has no intention of upgrading her speed.
