Nods. You know this, I know this. Other end users know this.
But its tricksy... incumbents and tariffs stipulate the units (new modems) MUST go through an approval proccess. And for rCable for instance it costs around $8,000 something just to submit a unit for testing... I think three units or something has to be put in each time and run the testing gamut.
The end results isn't guaranteed either if they choose not to approve then thats $8K+ down the drain...
Each incumbent vendor has a different modem approval cost and rating as outlined in the tariffs each submitted to the CRTC. I think cCable was the more expensive one out of them all.
Anyways, more on that here: TPIA Modem Testing
