Re: 100/2?

said by chakey:

That has got to be the most lopsided download to upload ratio I've ever seen. Seems like smoke and mirrors if you ask me.
RTFA. That is for the current Pre-DOCSIS 3.0 offering. The new fiber will be 100Mbps down, 50Mbps up.

Right, but to offer 100/2 at all? What is the point of that? Just to say they have it...

The blurb says they haven't enabled upstream channel bonding yet. You can pull down 100Mbps with only 2Mbps for the ACKs, so it's likely to offer the fast downstream speeds now, stabilize the network, then enable upstream channel bonding.

True--it is a step in the right direction, even if not a full step!
