Re: I got a deal!
That assumes only 8 channels to the node... There may be many channels to a given node, any single modem will currently be assigned a max of 8 of them
True. However I'd be surprised if any cable provider in the Us was reliably deploying more than eight DOCSIS downstream carriers at this point.
I'm saying the potential to virtualize many combonations of 8 is there on physical nodes which can be added as needed. Cable can continue adding capacity WHEN there is demand.
FTTH has a huge initial install sunk cost, basically the same for 15/15 customers as a 300/65 which sits there costing money even with no subs to pay for it.
