Ok, Why would it be nice? A 4 channel modem doing only 1 upstream channel is fully capable of 2mbps upstream, which is all Mediacom is going to allow you. You are only paying for 2mbps upstream. How is enabling more upstream channels going to help you??

There more to the multiple channel bonding than speeds. On a single channel modem I would see delays in channels changes that would seem like a loss of internet. I don't see them at all with my doc 3 6121.

tsduke is right.

I was having modem problems with my sb5121 so I got a 6121 and the problem went away. There was an upgrade glitch that was knocking docsis 2 modems offline when D3 went live in september. Mediacombill in the mediacom forums told me D3 was active so I got the D3 modem. They only started selling 50/5 service in our area the last part of DEC. It took them almost 4 months to test and make sure the service was running right.
