Re: [Speed] Should I upgrade my SB6121 to the SB6141?

8x4 vs. 4x4 definitely offers a fatter download pipe for more reliability in getting your subscribed to speeds more consistently especially during times of peak usage / congestion / load.

Interesting. That was exactly what I was wondering. So there ARE scenarios where it would make a difference. Thanks!

Provided that you local system is yet delivering eight downstream carriers, yes.

Agreed about the eight down.
I had the 6120 and bought the 6141 and have been using it for a few months.
My area does have the 8 channels down with 2 up and I did notice things being more constant with the 6141 than they were with the 6120.
I don't know how congestion is determined, but a Comcast tech told me there were only 31 subs on the node I am on.
The 6120 had no problems, but I like to have the latest for things coming down the road.

I live in a pretty rural area with few houses and a resident moose or two walking around. I guess you would call it the boonies.
The plant was put in all new in 2001.
The only thing I could figure was it was AT&T at the time and the regional manager for AT&T lived 3 houses away.
