Re: [Business] Buying a DOCSIS 3 Compliant Cable Modem
said by EG:I just got off the phone with the reli's in Minneapolis, and they called Comcast. Comcast will let their customers connect to their service with a D3 modem that they own. However, they can't sell you one. So, I am not sure what the issue is, they are more than willing to let you have one on their network, they are just unable to sell you one.
The question remains (and this is also, and especially for jlivingood
as well), will Comcast even provision a D3 modem for service on their network that is not leased by them yet ??

Well I'm sorry. And this may indeed be true, but I've heard differently, and read differently both here, and on other forums.

I think the issue isn't will they or won't they, nor is it should/must they.
The issue is why would you?
New technology. What if a big bug turns up and they have to replace modems, sending them to the factory for rework.
What if they decide to change the upstreeam turnover point from 42-54 to a higher value?
Seems to me there are lots of ways to end up with a brick.
