New CMTS for Butte?

Almost immediately after I posted today's charts my modem lost sync. When it came back speeds drastically improved.

Before loss of block sync




After resync



That's not all, either. The CMTS that I was on checked out to be a Cisco chassis. Doing an OUI lookup on the CMTS' MAC my modem is registered to now comes out to be CADANT INC. which was bought out by Arris. I am also now on a completely different netblock - 184.166.x.x. I must say, this might be the hope I have been holding on to. As always, time will tell...

More than likely Butte got upgraded to the Arris DOCSIS 3 C4 chassis. Found this 2009 press release from Arris: Bresnan Communications Selects ARRIS DOCSIS 3.0 C4 CMTS Platform and I doubt they would have gone and installed a DOCSIS 2.x or lower chassis...
