Re: Require DOCSIS 3 modem?
Pay attention to your modem's data channels, I'm sure you'll find them changing occasionally. When it does make a note of the channel ID, frequencies, modulation type, and symbol rate.
Look for upstream modulations of 8, 32, or 64 QAM; symbol rates of 5120, and/or ATDMA or SCDMA modulation. Any of that is a sure sign of DOCSIS 2 being used.
BTW, I never said the people you were talking to were lying, I said I wouldn't trust them to know.

I highly doubt Oceanic would have all their subscribers turn in their modems for a DOCSIS 3.0 compatible modem. Most subscribers here are still on DOCSIS 1.1, so it would be a nightmare to force everyone to switch all at once.
Oceanic is buying solely DOCSIS 3.0 modems from now on. I believe they'll replace these modems whenever subscribers upgrade, etc.
