[CA] Upgrades in San Diego?

Seems a few areas are receiving speed upgrades (Vegas/AZ). Is this a nationwide (San Diego?) thing, or select areas to compete with fiber? Please tell me it's the former! Sorry if the posy is a bit out of place. If so, please delete/move.

If I recall correctly, some areas are going to 15 Mbps upstream on the Premier plan. I'm not 100% certain, but I believe that upstream channel bonding is required to get this speed. No idea when the San Diego area will get upstream bonding.

Unfortunately, with no local fiber optic competition, the SD area seems to lag behind when enhancements are made.

AZ and Vegas have no Fiber competition, just Centurylink DSL (telco), so this is not a competition issue.

That's good to hear I guess. Hope it is a mass roll-out. Hopefully a tech can shine a little insight .

Well something appears to be happening in SD. I noticed last night I now have 4 channel upstream bonding and speedtests show a big improvement in upload. I'm in Mission Valley on the premier package.

I've always had 8 channels down, 4 up since I purchased the SB6180, and never go higher than these results with premier. I am in 92154, way down south next to IB.

No sign of any upstream bonding yet here in Poway, but it is likely that it will show up in San Diego first and reach the suburbs later.

So I called Cox and they pretty much had no clue about what was going on. He was nice enough to go dig up some info and offered to call me back. 15 minutes later, and he tells me they're upping the speeds in all markets! He did say they have no info as to what market is next, but they'll be reaching everyone throughout the year. Just hope South SD doesn't take too long...!

I am only bonding to 4/1 in northern Escondido.

With my new Cisco 8x4 modem my I still see 8 channels down / 1 channel up here in Vista. Better than the 4x1 I saw with my old Motorola 6120, but still. I've been on the lookout for upstream bonding for like a year now. Seems like forever to get it.

I still see Cox trucks doing work all over the place for some time now so I think it's coming soon. After hearing of the new speeds in the upgraded markets I just upgraded my modem to a 8x4 capable one and ordered a new gigabit router and switch because I realized only 100mb fast ethernet on my home network wont cut it with the new speeds.

What model Cisco modem do you use?

Is this directed at me? If so, I assume I'm on the correct plan considering I'm bonding to 4x1?

I got a free modem upgrade to a Cisco DPQ3212 from the Cox store the other day since I have their phone service and their Ultimate tier for internet. It immediately locked 8 downstream channels once installed. Got a new config file auto update from Cox that night. Signal levels are good and it seems to be stable and perform well so far.

Can't wait to see what this thing can do once the new speeds kick in. With lots of devices connected, we are a bunch of bandwidth pigs at my house.

I just ran a speed test and saw 20 Mbps upstream. I checked my modem, and sure enough I have 4 upstream channels. I found this thread via google, and am just confirming that there is now upstream channel bonding in SD. Awesome.

you transmit power is to high should be between 40-50, if you have any splitters try removing them

You don't have 8 down and 4 up. You show only 1 down and one up.

Upstream bonding varies by market. If anything the upstream power level of 54 is more of a concern if you're having any connection problems.

I've had 8 bonded downstream and 4 bonded upstream for months now. I'm in san diego center -- near city heights & SDSU. I'm running an SB6180. I'm on premier and my connection goes to 32Mbit down immediately, but is capped right there. Interestingly, I'm getting 32Mbit up, too. Can't wait for some upgrades... 50Mbit wouldn't hurt!
