Re: [ALL] Cox Annual Speed Upgrade

Thanks for the info. I only have a 4x4 Docsis 3 modem. I'm going to buy a 8x4 one tomorrow.

I guess I'll stick with the 6120 for now (4x2 I think) which should be more than enough for the coming upgrade since it's just a small upgrade on the upstream end of things.

Hmm, I must have read something funny a while ago when I bought it...possibly misunderstood as well. 4x4 it is then! Even better for me I'll wait to upgrade when something significantly faster comes out.

Ya. They brought the price up way too high to get to that tier. Everything jumps up 5-10 bucks and then out of nowhere doubles when it comes to that one. That just brings me back to my comparison between the TVs lol. They waive something above your head to gain your interest and then when you look the other way they ramrod your rear with a giant flagpole and laught about it. Meanwhile they make a *killing* on profit.

I remember running a 300 baud on CompuServe. they charged more if you ran 1200. Oh I miss my old Tandy...

Yeah, those were the days. I had an old Atari 400 and a acoustically coupled modem. I spent a fortune in those days on computers.

You should upgrade to the 8x4. I upgraded from the SB6121 to the SB6141. Cox in Las Vegas utilizes 8 channels downstream and 2 channels upstream.

And their 2400 baud rates were total extortion.... Remember my 300 baud modem on my Atari 800XL though... For the 2400, I had an Amiga 500, and a floppy from AmigaWorld (I think) with a list of BBSes, and that started me off... went from that to running a BBS on FidoNet and AmigaNet, to running an IRC server on the Amiga IRC network, to, well, now...

Heh I remember when I was young connecting to Prodigy under DOS using a 2400bps modem and a 386/25Mhz w/ 4MB of RAM.

Good god how slow it redrawed stuff, but it was still fun for those days.

I had the exact same setup.

First time I bought something "on-line" was on Prodigy. Sears had put their catalog on Prodigy, so I pre-ordered the TurboGrafx Express handheld.
