Re: Let's keep all DOCSIS 3.0 Discussion in this thread, please
said by Der_Idiot:Not everyone will be able to be moved to DOCSIS v3 right away. This is already, for the most part, apparent(at the moment anyways).
I'll agree though, it's hard to provide docsis3 speeds to everyone, but be honest, could you build a network to provide bandwidth in excess of 50megabits to millions of subscribers, and operate it for a price that is anywhere near reasonable? I know I couldn't, not something that huge.
It's hard to imagine any entity being able to supply that amount of bandwidth at any given time. But if they are selling it, they should be able to supply it. In this case, is where having a big corporation with alot of money is put to the test.
And for what it's worth, eventually it's going to come down to customers demanding it. And whether Comcast is smart with future developments, infrastructure future-proofing, and money allocating. Because to put it bluntly, if they don't they won't make it. Thats where the future is going, and thats what customers will demand eventually.
