I know you you feel, we are still waiting on it up here (Mendocino County, Northwestern California) too, as well as still waiting on Blast. Currently, the highest tier here is 8000/2000 (Performance Plus) w/Powerboost on the download (no Powerboost on the uploads here).

Its coming... Aurora is being upgraded to a D3 CMTS today - you may notice the outage.

Third quarter is when the actual launch is expected. I've already got a Surfboard 6120 hooked up and ready to fly so we'll see if that receive light turns blue when they do Littleton and Denver on Thursday and Friday. Hopefully once the CMTS is D3, the modem will switch to D3. Even if I'm still provisioned for Blast, there should be a nice lift in stability at the least.

I did notice my downstream power change from +14 to +9 and my upstream from +39 to +44 today. I am in Aurora, don't know if this helps or is just a coincidence. Unfortunately I don't have a SB6120 so I won't know when the CMTS is D3

ETHREM! Nice to see your still out there

From the source I have, my CMTS was installed last night, but the cutover won't happen until the 23rd. My modem never went offline last night and my signal levels didn't change, and still no blue download light.

Interesting. I wonder if they're going to do the same out here. I want my blue download light damn it! LOL

And yeah, I've been lurking. Trashed my account after I got sick of people jumping down my throat but saw your post and thought it would be worth responding to.

At least they're finally doing it... They put it off long enough.

I'm in Lakewood, CO. Roommate texted me the Internet went out. I wonder if they're doing the upgrade in Lakewood now?

Dunno. Internet is still up for me... but I'm in south Lakewood. Kipling and Morrison area.

Englewood is scheduled for today, Littleton for tomorrow, and Denver for Friday.

It appears that Parker (or at least me) got cut over to the new CMTS last night around 1AM. They didn't force a release of the old IP, so that caused some problems for me, but I'm back up with a new IP on a new subnet that doesn't even have the RDNS/PTR records yet (which is causing problems for sending mail on their mail server - gets rejected). My first hop IP also changed and has no RDNS as well...

My signal strength and frequencies also changed. I don't have a D3 modem yet though...

On the (very) positive side, my speeds went from my usual 1-3Mbps to insanely fast. I was getting 2200-3500KB/sec today during prime time, and I'm on 16/2 business on an SB5101...Hopefully the speed increase isn't just because other people haven't rebooted their equipment yet to grab a new IP...We shall see!

Thats good to hear. I also hope that you don't loose your speeds, but I would give it 24hrs at least before getting to happy (crosses fingers). I can't wait for my cutover, I hope they have more than 2 downstream channels (thats what they currently have in my area).

This is very promising that it is now 5PM, and I couldn't even get it to hiccup off of this speed:

What speed tier are you supposed to have. On the calculator that speed translates to 23.92Mbits. The cap for the 22/5 package is: Downstream: 24200 kbps
Upstream: 5500 kbps

I'd say you're damn close to it. Seeing as some have said CO is getting upgraded to D3, you might be seeing testing going on. Regardless, enjoy the speed while you got it.

No it really equals to 15.92mb down because you go 1.99x8=15.92

But still dling at them speeds are nice.

Think your math is a lil off. I go here: »www.easycalculation.com/bandwidt···ator.php

But whatever the case, anything faster then what you got, even for a lil while is great. Sit back and enjoy, eh?

Edit: OOPS, I was off, pardon me! It is right when you put it that way! ^_^

I just changed my IP and still stuck at 8/2 here in S/E Aurora, is that the tier you're subscribed to?

Foreal my math is correct, and im not here to argue, even putting 1.99mb on that calculator it came out to be 15.92megabits.

I'm on 16/2 business for those that are calculating my speeds...PB seems to last for about 50 megs and is in the 2200-3500KB/sec range...

Three is the minimum that markets will launch with. Most should have four though.

My downstream power level (here in Boulder) jumped from -3.5dB to +3.5dB, and it's unclear exactly why. I noticed a bunch of T3 timeouts in the logs, too, this afternoon.

The Comcast tech that came out last Friday indicated that D3 was coming 'soon' and that the upgrades were 'underway'.

You would think that we would get D3 earlier here, what with being 10 minutes away from CableLabs.

Tons of trucks around the area, and once again a bunch of guys doing work at both boxes up the street from me. I went through my logs and noticed over the past two nights the internet has been going offline, noticed it this morning since I left work VPN on before bed, came down this morning and everthing was off...checked logs...bunch of T3 stuff/Init RANGING/etc. No speed differences. I was thinking about going ahead doing a D3 modem upgrade, may look around to see if I can find one local.

Guess we'll see what happens.
