Re: [Speed] Heads-Up: Time to Replace Your DOCSIS 1.1 Modem
said by tshirt:Unless someone is happy to be on the Economy tier for a long time you are going to need to do channel bonding to take full advantage of your speeds in the future, and that means you want a D3 device. You also want that investment to last a long time and not learn that your D2 device is in End of Life or End Of Service status in a year or two. You also want modern features like IPv6, and to know that the vendor is still releasing firmware updates periodically.
A good question, Maybe Jason can answer for certain.
I'd guess that because D2 is closer to D3 than D1.1, but was never widely adopted, it can co-exist for the meantime, which may not be more then a year or two which is why he suggested a D3 modem, and probably should have hinted at IPv6 CERTIFIED (per comcast's list) for best future longevitity (only the future is future-proof)
All of which is dependent upon Comcast upgrading all systems to D3.

Nevermind, wrong question to ask. D2 modems will still work but won't be capable of new speeds. D1 modems will fail to work.
