How will comcast being handling us (PERFORMANCE TIER) that own our docsis 2.0 modems that dont want to upgrade yet? How long will we have?
A few years ago we removed all the D1.0 modems, and we're doing that now with D1.1 modems. It can be safely assumed that D2.0 will follow.
The process usually works in two ways. First if you are on a tier that needs a D3.0 device (or D3.1 in the future) you will be formally notified that we cannot deliver the advertised speeds unless you upgrade your device. I recommend you consider doing so now - see a recommended retail list @ »mynewmodem.comcast.net/
The second is that at some point the devices need to be removed from the network. When that happened with D1.0 or D1.1 for example, customers are notified that they need to upgrade their device by a specific date, after which they will not have service.

I strongly recommend anyone with a D2.0 modem upgrade now to a D3.0 modem. It gets you downstream & upstream channel bonding for better performance, IPv6 support, etc.--
