Re: guess i dont get it in Round Lake

said by tim tim tim:

Just because your area is upgraded to d3 doesnt mean all of the services are using it, the 10-20meg services are still going to be using d2.

that could be changing or it could become standard practice to switch EVERYTHING to D3 channel bonding even down to the lowest of the low economy packages.

yeah, probably someday that will be the case but not now, its not really needed.

Also, I don't know of any cable co's that are truly using GHz of bandwidth. The one I work for has all 1GHz equipment but still run at 860. I think the reasoning behind it is signal attenuation as you reach that 1GHz range over drops and in home cable that will begin to be a headache. If they can get away with 860 and use SDV id think it would be a bit more reliable and easier to keep customers in specs. Not to mention once all of the cable co's drop analog, thats a LOT of bandwidth that will be available.
