what areas do not yet have D3?

So, I'm curious, what areas do not yet have D3? My county of Mendocino here in NW CA doesn't (I was told by CS online we'll see it sometime this summer, who knows how true that is) and the same goes for Santa Cruz County. Chime in if you are D3less, and if they have given you any sort of date for getting it.

yay cheaper!
As far as I know there is no DOCSIS 3 anywhere in New Mexico. I haven't heard any dates.

We did however see a change in our billing and speed (although we haven't gotten a new config file).

Not many here near Detroit have it..(but you knew that..lol)
Last time I asked no one knew when it might drop, but it's been a while since I asked.

I changed the nic card in my PC and got a new IP in a new subnet.
It's been 68.xxx.xxx.xxx forever, at least 7 yrs, many diferent computers.
But now it's 24.23.xxx.xxx . Don't know if thats of any consequence or not.

Here in Eustis, Florida I have received no communication from Comcast about a D3 upgrade. Eustis is about 20 Miles North, North West of Orlando. The provisioning on my modem changed from 6600 kbps to 8800 kbps several weeks ago. Comcast might be getting ready to roll out D3.

Downstream
Lock Status Operational
Modulation 256QAM
Channel ID 46
Provisioned Rate 8800 kbps
Symbol Rate 5360.537 Ksym/sec
Downstream Power -7.2 dBmV
SNR 36.5 dB

thats crazy Mr Matt, i live just north of the villages in summerfield, same with us. you actually live closer to tavares/leesburg though, which im told has docsis 3 already. supposedly this year is going to be a "good year" for customers in our areas..

really its just all fluff and more bullshit from comcast, i pay insane amounts of money for a crap connection from them. hopefully docsis 3 will remedy this

No D3 here in the Waynesboro/Stuarts Draft area. AFAIK no D3 within an hour or so drive from here. No ETA either.

In Dunnelon, Floridia there was no digital cable and I can only assume they are running DOCSIS 1.0 still. I think the max speeds were 3.0 mpbs.

Did Comcast drop the ball? I provided Comcast with my e-mail address on the D3 availability web page before the end of 2010 requesting to be advised when D3 was available. I have not yet received notice from Comcast. Is it possible that they are withholding notice and advising customers city by city in order to avoid chaos. If to many customers try to upgrade at the same time they may run out of modems or support personnel.

My Linksys BEFCMU10 ver. 4 is behaving like it is connected to a DOCSIS 3.0 System. A contributor to this forum indicated that the DOCSIS 2.0 modem they owned, began changing downstream and upstream channels spontaneously after DOCSIS 3.0 service was announced. Mine started doing so after the provisioning was changed from 6600 kbps to 8800 kbps. I am waiting for an e-mail or insert in my bill to advise that DOCSIS 3.0 is available.

It's likely to be 1.1. From what I understand all 1.0 modems are now "end of life".

reply to Mr Matt

I requested an email as well but never relied on it.Its been over a year now since D3 went out here and no email yet lol,just go put your address in for availability and it will tell you what services are available.If they offer extreme then you have it if not its a no go.What gets me is that they have modems out now with 12 bonded downstream channels and 8 upstream so its going to be like the interstates once they are done upgrading they will need to upgrade again.You turn a 2-lane road into a 4-lane,it takes 2 to 4 years and by the time the Hwy is done it needs to be wider.

No D3 here yet in Louisiana. As of 3/20/11, we've only just got 16/2 Blast! after 4 years at 8/2. I definitely like it, but I'd have liked it much better if I got 25/4 instead.

Starting to look like no where in Va has it (although I think, not sure, Warrenton/Fauquier County does)

Fauquier does D3, along with all of NoVA - Prince William, Reston, Stafford, Spotsylvania, Loudoun, Alexandria, and Arlington. So does Richmond city, Henrico County, and Chesterfield.

I'm in a former Adelphia area. When I do a tracerout it goes through Staunton (not far from the other guy from Waynesboro area.)

About a month ago I was upgraded from 6/1 to 8/2 at no charge (so far).

Yes as far as I can determine. Unless there is a concrete way to verify.

No, not on the economy package. I have a SB5100 and my IP address and download speeds have not changed.

A 5100 can't reveal multiple channel bonding.

I am aware of that. I was expecting a change of IP address or a notice from Comcast but neither happened. The web site to check for D3 availability now only has a video and a telephone number to call. I have yet to call or purchase a D3 modem just to determine if it is available.

Thanks

WIW, a change of your WAN (public) IP addy would not necessarily accompany an upgrade to D3 on your system.

So, the only way would be to get a confirmation via telephone or purchase a modem and wait for it show channel bonding?
