Re: TWC dallas just a matter of time before 8 ch. downstream?

Right now they can only get 60Mbps per node max on the upstream.

Does this mean 60Mbps for all customers the node serves, or up to 60 per customer?

Do you know what the node total will be once they add more upstream channels, or on average how many customers there are per node?

Oh wow, 60 is the max in total? I thought lots of people share a node. So are nodes capped at 12 customers if they all have Wideband?

the thing is that we are already at 4 upstream channels in North Texas:

24.5MHz
29.5MHz
33MHz
36.5MHz

all are 3.2MHz wide QAM64/QAM16 mixed mode so if you have noise on the line they default to QAM16.

Right now each upstream channel has about 15Mbps throughput and with bonding the theoretical max you can get is 60Mbps barring that your upstream channels have no noise and they stay at QAM64 across the board.

Is there any way to determine the identity of my node? If I can get on a tall ladder and examine the outer housing, is there anything that would allow me to see the ID of my node?

I know mine is a Motorola, but are they capable of being upgraded to a higher bandwidth? I'm curious because of how Comcast is offering 65Mbps upload on their new top tier what sort of nodes they are using that allows for such high bandwidth.

call customer services they will tell you what node you are on if you ask.

The systems in North Texas have 5-40MHz to play with on the upstream and it is going to be hard to get 2 6.4MHz wide upstream channels along with 2 3.2MHz upstream channels instead of the 4 3.2MHz channels which is basically like having 2 6.4MHz channels broken down into 4 channels instead of 2.

doubt TWC will be upgrading the motorola nodes they are already rated for 870MHz which were in place before TWC bought the system and upgraded it to 870MHz. The newer nodes are the Aurora nodes and the have an arc on them

A lot of the nodes in East Arlington are the newer Aurora nodes that likely have a digital return on them but the limiting factor on the upstream is the amplifiers that some of which in the field are rated for 5-40MHz only instead of 5-42MHz.

Comcast is doing the 305/65 tier via DIRECT Fiber connection not via COAX.. From the Fiber Node to the home it's fiber.. so it's not DOCSIS 3.x which means it's not limited to the node restrictions mentioned above. [It works off the same type of setup as Metro Ethernet does that they offer to business class customers]
