I think it's definitely a good move for them to eliminate the "Wideband" brand. I'm pretty technically inclined and stay up on the news pretty well, but admittedly didn't know what the hell "Wideband" was the first time I started seeing TV commercials for it. Eventually I just made the assumption it was their reference to DOCSIS 3.0, which in all honesty none of their average consumers would know the first thing about.
In relative terms life is shorter than the blink of an eye. Remember that each and every day because in the end it's not about what you've done but how you've lived.

And many of their markets don't have DOCSIS 3.0 yet. I can tell you first hand that TWC Maine does not have D3 available. Not to mention their junk equipment. It took three different trips to the service center to get a different modem. All they had were the SA/Cisco DPC 2203 voice/data modems (that are junk) and I finally scored an Ubee AND it had a battery with it as it was brand new. Batteries are important in EMTAs used in elderly households (like my Grandma's house).
All of my CPE (including my EMTA) is customer owned. The only Comcast owned equipment in my house is the CableCards in the two TiVO boxes I own.
