Re: Let's keep all DOCSIS 3.0 Discussion in this thread, please
said by caco:QWest has announced it is deploying Fiber Optic [to the node] with ADSL2+ from the node. They are going to offer 12Mbps and 20Mbps. Comcast got ahead of QWest in offering this because they know that QWest will NEVER have the ability to do 50Mbps in the near future and that QWest hasn't actually deployed more than probably 5% of the fiber needed to give this capability to its customers. Comcast dropped fiber lines in place 6 or 7 years ago!
Is Fios in the Twin Cities? No!
Now please stop with same argument over and over. You have no clue what you are talking about. Everyone can have an opinion, doesn't have to be right that is for sure!
In short, they are offering it here first because QWest is poorly run company with ancient infrastructure and they can easily beat QWest at this game, no matter what cat QWest thinks it can pull out of that magic bag. Verizon FIOS on the other hand, is doing fiber to the home and Comcast can NOT compete with that directly should Verizon decide to open the pipe!
In short, QWest is an easy target and Minneapolis is full of tech savvy customers that will fill these forums with how great the Comcast product is!
Now you know why they chose the Twin Cities and now you know that in the end, they are behind the ball compared to the likes of Verizon FIOS.

As far I can see..Verizon already opened their pipes..20/20 and 15/15..Comcast is NO WHERE near that upload.
Plus Fios doesn't have caps.
if you listen to the fast talk at the end of the commercial it says "speeds not guaranteed.do a speed test with fios 20/20 you get about 15/3
