Re: [Praise] Finally made the jump to D3!

This area has been DOCSIS 3.0 for years. My Blast connection looks like this tonight.

DiffProbe beta release. October 2009. Build 1002.
Shaper Detection Module.

Connected to server 38.106.70.162.

Estimating capacity:
Upstream: 5638 Kbps.
Downstream: 35940 Kbps.

The measurement will take upto 2.5 minutes. Please wait.

Checking for traffic shapers:

Upstream: No shaper detected.
Median received rate: 5525 Kbps.

Downstream: Burst size: 10441-10777 KB;
Shaping rate: 30818 Kbps.

I'll check with my "sources" again.

The reply from my Comcast source indicated these are the DOCSIS 3.0 tiers offered by Comcast now.

Extreme 50 (50/10 Mbps) or (50/15 Mbps)
Extreme 105 (105/10 or (105/20 Mbps)

However, a DOCSIS 3.0 modem is recommended for Blast tier once upgraded to the higher speeds of 20+. I am actually provisioned at 27.5/4 here.

My results.....

Estimating capacity:
Upstream: 5239 Kbps.
Downstream: 14789 Kbps.

Checking for traffic shapers:

Upstream: No shaper detected.
Median received rate: 5114 Kbps.

Downstream: No shaper detected.
Median received rate: 14504 Kbps.

As the DiffProbe Shaper Module page says:

"ShaperProbe tries to answer the question: Is the ISP shaping my traffic? In other words, is my "connection speed" dropped automatically to a low rate after some time?

We detect traffic shaping, which means that the customer gets a large rate for a certain number of bytes, and then the rate is dropped automatically to a lower value. If a user gets rate limited for certain time periods, he/she can detect that observing the capacity estimates given by ShaperProbe."

So, if no shapers were detected in either the upstream or downstream, does that mean that there is no PowerBoost?

Yet the "run-of-the-mill" speedtest YukonHawk ran ("31.12Mbps down and 5.12Mbps up") seemed to indicate a 2X downstream PowerBoost being applied.

Thanks Sort.....The D3 EMTA is arriving this coming Monday. Once it goes live I'll post my new ShaperProbe speed results. I am "assuming" I am getting an Arris Model 7xxx I think that shows the provisioning rate once I log into it. Take care and enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Okay....I received my package today and instead of another EMTA I received a Cisco DPC3008. It's in-line between the DIR-655 router and the Arris EMTA. Everything is up and running and screaming along. I ran ShaperProbe and here are the readings....

Estimating capacity:
Upstream: 5108 Kbps.
Downstream: 35088 Kbps.

The measurement will last for about 2.5 minutes. Please wait.

Checking for traffic shapers:

Upstream: No shaper detected.
Median received rate: 5002 Kbps.

Downstream: Burst size: 11194-11346 KB; Shaping rate: 31202 Kbps.

I'll have to call Comcast tomorrow to make sure I am not going to be charged an additional $7 per month for the Cisco. Anyway, things are good for now. Have a good night.
