Comcast has some aggressive plans for its "superfast" wideband connectivity in 2009. The cable giant hopes to roll out DOCSIS 3.0 to 65 percent of its reach before the end of this year, which amounts to some 30 million homes and businesses.
I have Comcast. They always talk a big game and don't deliver. This will be no different.
I just switched to U-verse and I'm enjoying the consistent bitrate, compared to Comcast's which was always hit or miss.
And unfortunately, I'm nowhere near that demographic. I'm in rural (middle of buttf*** nowhere) Florida and the ONLY service out here is DSL at 1.5mbps. I seriously doubt that Comcast will bring it out my way.
u know comcast going to raise the price once again
Doesn't the signal degrade faster with DOCSIS 3.0 then ADSL+ 2? That means you'd have to be pretty damn close to the exchange to see decent speed from it.
So you'll reach your bandwidth cap how fast? 250GB cap = 5000s / 60s/m ~ 83 minutes
Australia only gets 10gig for 512 and that costs us $50AUD. Then 25gig for ADSL+ 2 for roughly $70-$80 depending on who your with and regardless of what speed you get from it.
The biggest issue is still the price. $139.95 a month is way to expensive for a majority of that "footprint".
For a 100 Mbits access here in Portugal you only pay 60 to 65 euros. 139.95 it's to expensive.
I got verizon fios about a month ago 50Mbps/20Mbps and still takes too long to dl full high def movies about 2 hours. Also how fast is T1 speed? I heard they're only for business use only
i had comcast for the last 2 years and switched to dsl. Couldnt be happier. Comcast is garbage... they talk big numbers but they cant give a steady bandwidth.. it would jump back and forth between 8000kbps to about 200 which is like 56k... the jumping back and forth is all over... 6000 to 8000 to 3000 to 9000. Anyone knows that u cant play games like that. When i called support i was told by a technician that his boss doesnt feel gaming is a priority he only cares if people can surf the web. And i was paying 100 dollars a month. In left 4 dead i couldnt even shoot a normal zombie... not 1... my bullits would float through them, it was pathetic. Do not get comcast... be better with a constant 3000kbps with dsl.. which i love :) Games run beautifully now.
Like or Dislike Comcast. This is just another symbol that bandwidth is getting bigger and spreading around better. Perheps in a few years I might can get 5-10 Mbps connection or better.
