I thought DOCSIS modems had little to no benefits over non-DOCSIS modems. I mean, in Canada, we get rockin speeds, and we're all proprietary mostly, but in the states they're all DOCSIS, but they get crap speeds! (Except OOL)
Some people told me the only benefits were on the head-end. I also heard it gave you HIGHER pings!--
