Thanks a lot, but I would still really appreciate any other input, because that thread doesn't really contain valuable info.

I'm generally doing better than that with the Ericsson, but of course so much depends on your cable and node, so it's hard to say that it's the modem.

I am also getting better speeds with the RCA, I guess both modems are good, its not really the modem, as sbrook said, it depends on your line quality, the node congestion, etc.

Of course it is fast if you are the first few in an empty cabinet.

And when most people are migrated to DOCSIS, you would like to be on the old side.

Exactly! You hit it right on the head, Tymex. Except with DOCSIS, Rogers will just know in clearer and clearer terms, the exact same thing they know now: there are TOO MANY people on the node!
