Re: It's coming

Docsis 3 allows for 8x4 bonding with current modems and can easily provide 100+/15+ mbit/s speeds... As comparison to DSL: if you look to VDSL and ADSL2+ Annex J in Europe you see 2+ Mbit/ upload even on ADLS2+... I put 50% of the blame on the US consumer for not speaking up - or manning up to start another provider... (note: I am in the US and currently on CV Boost+ with 50/8 (in practice 60/8) cable service.. I had FIOS with 150/65 before but it was not worth $100 for me...
As to what others need to pay for service: It's a correlation of suburbaness vs. service... i.e. if I would move to Montana I would save >20,000 USD a year in property tax... any increase along the line of maybe 2,000 USD total ISP fees would still be jump change...
I am addicted to speed --- Boost + speed that is ---
