Re: [Cable] Should I get the Motorola SB6120 at this point? (28m
said by TSIElizabeth:Which makes sense. The carriers are not going to bother putting the effort into rolling out newer firmware unless there is a very good reason to do so. For cable the firmware updates were to resolve bugs that resulted in instability for a portion of the user base after upstream channel bonding was rolled out. But it was a feature that has not seen real world use until very recently even though it is a part of the DOCSIS 3.0 spec. The fact that Bell took so long to roll out the firmware updates for the CellPipe modems is ridiculous.
These upgrades are only performed to maintain network stability and to ensure that the modem is functioning properly.
