Re: Comcast lying?
You don't get it. They would have to physically REPLACE a surprising amount of hardware throughout the distribution network to support higher frequency return. Amps, converters, bridges, RF switches, etc., etc. These are not devices that can be fixed with a firmware upload. You cannot turn a 10M nic into a 10G nic with new firmware; it's physical components limit the capability.
Could they? Sure. At the cost of billions. You expect the greedy bastards who won't spend single digit millions on D3 upgrades, to wholesale rebuild their entire network? Right. Hold your breath until they do.
