anyone know what areas are being upgraded as we speak?

Does anyone know what systems are being upgraded to 1GHz or having the amplifiers replaced? I noticed that some systems have digital simulcast up and running so I am guessing that is a part of the upgrades? I noticed that some systems have begun placing analogs really high at the top of the system in locations like 85 or 87 I wonder if this is a part of the upgrades?

Also those of you that have the 50Mbps tier does Cable One only use 2 downstream channels to bond for that package?

I hope, to see something like a 250GB/month cap for 50mbps service by 2016-2018 from cable one, for their still 50mbps service, that will still probably be around by then.

Then again I hope to move from here and get somewhere with an actual decent internet.

Only 2 choices here that isn't $100 month for 10mbps or under service is cableone and verizon. Verizons 10mbps service might as well be 1mbps if its even working and cablone's only good service is the 10mbps if you got it before they removed the service.

Still got the 50Mbps/50GB month service, and rather not bundle tv/phone that I don't need for $100 month 100GB/month service...

I've got the 50mb business plan, and the modem is showing that it is using 4 channels on the downstream.

cool I know that Madill is a part of the Ardmore system. I have friends that live up in Ardmore so I have been to someones house with cableone before.

I guess that one of the reasons why you have 4 downstream channels is that the Ardmore cluster system is 860MHz and has been for a while at least since 2004-2005 ish.

I personally have Time Warner Cable and my market is getting upgraded to 8 channels on the downstream and 4 channels on the upstream and the system is 860MHz as well.

here is what I have:

Downstream Bonded Channels
Channel Lock Status Modulation Channel ID Frequency Power SNR Correctables Uncorrectables
1 Locked QAM256 3 783000000 Hz -3.6 dBmV 37.0 dB 278 0
2 Locked QAM256 1 771000000 Hz -2.7 dBmV 37.8 dB 7 0
3 Locked QAM256 2 777000000 Hz -3.1 dBmV 38.0 dB 54 0
4 Locked QAM256 4 789000000 Hz -4.0 dBmV 36.4 dB 214 0
5 Locked QAM256 5 795000000 Hz -4.4 dBmV 36.1 dB 395 0
6 Locked QAM256 6 801000000 Hz -4.4 dBmV 36.9 dB 22 0
7 Locked QAM256 7 807000000 Hz -5.2 dBmV 36.6 dB 140 0
8 Locked QAM256 8 813000000 Hz -5.4 dBmV 35.8 dB 23848 89516

Upstream Bonded Channels
Channel Lock Status US Channel Type Channel ID Symbol Rate Frequency Power
1 Locked TDMA and ATDMA 10 2560 Ksym/sec 33000000 Hz 30.7 dBmV
2 Locked TDMA and ATDMA 9 2560 Ksym/sec 36500000 Hz 30.7 dBmV
3 Locked TDMA and ATDMA 11 2560 Ksym/sec 29500000 Hz 30.7 dBmV
4 Locked TDMA and ATDMA 12 2560 Ksym/sec 24500000 Hz 30.7 dBmV

It would be interesting to see what cable one is running in Ardmore/Madill which is one of the Cable One systems that gets a lot of things that 550MHz markets don't.
