[IL] Central IL DOCSIS 3.0 status

I was wondering if anyone has any information on the roll out progress of docsis 3.0 in the central IL region.

I would like to replace my touchstone modem as soon as possible.

Certain areas of our markets have already made the transition. If you would, send me an IM with your account number or phone number. I'll be glad to check and see what's up in your neck of the woods.

We are working on getting all of our areas upgraded, unfortunately it does take time as we have to order the parts for each area, and they are custom built by the manufacturer. In some areas we also have to build a new building to house the upgrades.

I show the Gibson City area has been upgraded, however the Fisher/Mohamet area has not been upgraded as of yet.

I am currently showing that Rantoul, IL hasn't transitioned to DOCSIS 3.0 as of yet.

Its sad when rantoul is bigger than most markets media com has and its still not done. Heck philo has docis 3 and its smaller than fisher. Comcast is on the ball

Rantoul is pretty much last to get anything. I know the hardware is ready to go, just waiting on Mediacom to make the switch.

No wonder why mediacom is losing money if you install capital equipment you need to use it to pay for it.
