Re: Require DOCSIS 3 modem?
Well, with the recent changes that TWC has been trying to push it seems that they are trying to consolidate their Internet plans on a nationwide basis, at least in all the territories that they operate including your Oceanic group. If TWC has a hand in it, like the Oceanic group as you say, they will most likely end up being pressed into changes that TWC has been pushing to other territories that they run. This will include standardizing the hardware and configurations used in all of their footprints including all the headend equipment, CMTS, and node hardware in the field.
What does this mean for you as an Oceanic customer? Probably a more consistent service lineup that is more inline with the rest of the TWC company. Other territories are starting to allow users to own their own cable modems minus support for them. Most likely you will see the same option to do so in the future with the consolidation that they are trying to do across their markets.
I've tried to stay civil in this conversation and maintain my posts with facts, nothing else.
