Re: 2012 Modem Poll
said by quatrix:Same old opinion of yours, same old opinion of mine;
I'd be surprised if the majority own DOCSIS 3 modems since they're still overpriced and unnecessary.
There are benefits to be had by using a D3 capable modem on an upgraded to D3 system such as increased connection reliability due to the multiple bonded channel redundancy and failover capability. There are also increased capacity/reduced congestion benefits which result in increased reliability of receiving one's provisioned speeds especially during times of peak usage/demand. Higher Powerboost assisted speeds have been noted as well. It's a win win for both the provider and the subscriber.
