Re: [Speed] Heads-Up: Time to Replace Your DOCSIS 1.1 Modem

I do agree. Doing it in stages (remove the 1.0 first, then the 1.1 next, and then remove the 2.x last) is the best move.

Not to mention, those with D2 eMTA's (like myself) have very few (if any options) to purchase a D3 eMTA on their own. While I rent, I know there are quite a number of people who do purchase, and if they have a D2 eMTA now, and want to go buy a D3 one, the options are not very good (if any exist at all).

Hopefully when Comcast does force the D2's off the network, there will be more options to purchase a D3 eMTA then there are now.

DOCSIS 2.0 will probably not go away due to what DrDrew is saying the boxes out there currently do not have DOCSIS 3.0 bonding capability but motorola says that I think the DCX series boxes and maybe the DCH have a DOCSIS 2.0+ which I think can bond 3 channels for the cable modem but you would have to have a firmware upgrade from motorola to support it and none of the current firmware versions support DOCSIS 2.0+ on the boxes internal modem. Time Warner Cable is already using DOCSIS modems in boxes in my area to deliver the tru2way Navigator 5.2 black guide data on DCX3200M and DCX3400M as well as the DCX3510M. My area has legacy iGuide boxes as well that just got BIAP apps this last july to support TWC's caller id on tv as well as their nifty startover and lookback features. Now TWC pretty much has blended SDV, VOD, and network DVR features (startover/lookback) in my area.
