Re: Anyone think we may see 20Mbps or more UL speeds via Cable?

20 up is definitely possible with DOCSIS 3.0. Many MSOs in the US offer it, and their D3 upgrades are often not as mature as Rogers. Until they see a mass exodus to Bell due to upload speeds, I doubt we'll see improvements anytime soon.

Many MSOs in the US don't have as many subscribers per cable segment either. If you only have a small number of subs per segment, you can deal with higher speeds. Also, from what I've seen, US consumers are more accepting of speed sags and the UP TO clause! In other words they seem less likely to get bent out of shape when their speeds vary. Canadian consumers do seem far more demanding.

Interesting. I would have thought the opposite due to the higher population density and the popularity of triple play bundles that essentially force you to take all three services or pay a ridiculous price for one.
