Re: new topic9;DOCSIS 3.0/3.1?

said by Hard Harry:

I say buy now. DOCSIS 3.1 is at-least 6 months away, and even then it will only be available in some area's, for the top tier. SB6141 goes for 82$ on Newegg.

DOCSIS 3.1 is more like 2-3 years away.

I was going by the 1Gbps by end of year announcement. My guess Phoenix will be first test market with Google moving in on Cox's footprint. How could Cox do it without DOCSIS 3.1? FTTP?

Google has years to even start to build that network anywhere outside of Provo and KCs. They haven't even started in Austin let alone ready to move to any of the other cities they have agreements with. Those cities still have to meet the requirements and do the foot work that Google doesn't want to pay for- ie: locating the utilities in the ground and moving any that Google wants moved, and giving Google free co-lo space in city owned buildings.
