[Business] Anyone able to get Comcast to sell symetical business

Just wondering if anyone's been able to convince Comcast to make a deal on a plan with symmetrical down/up. I'm really looking for 27/27 or even 16/16. Don't need the extra download speeds from the other plans.

Using coax? Nope. You'll have to look at metro Ethernet for something like that.

It's not like it's not technically possible for coax and isn't a 20/20 metro ethernet connection in excess of $1000/mo + $1000s in installation fees?

Its theoretically possible, but the config files arent built for it. There isnt a way to completely customize the speed each individual wants down to meg....they have a dozen or so conifg filles that determinte the speed (between business and residential) based on what level of service you elect to pay for.

No, but it's not technically possible for DOCSIS.

You sure about that?

Possible, but not practical until they move to less subscribers per node. Once at the required level, one could make a slightly compelling argument for just moving to GPON to drop the maintenance costs.
