Thank you, Bob. Now we're getting somewhere. I'll be interested to find out what specifically those reasons are for it always being lopsided.
I'm just sharing the IM messages instead of passing it on in my own words.
so why would you guys not be able to get the upload symmetrical?
It's not that we won't be able to, tech speaking. Docsis will get there if they want it to but the plant will not be able to. The system is shared with so many different things and rr is a small part. We already have symm fiber to business, whatever they want basically. Even when we go sdv and get rid of analog there will still be a lower usable amount of bandwidth for return bc of interference and other variables that are not in the labs but are in real life where they r deployed.
Phil (8/26):The system and specs were designed to send data to the sub and that's the way it will always be. We're basically retroing a 1 way design so eventually we won't be able to go any further. Sorry for writing a book. Have a good night--
