Certification testing for 100Mbps cable modems begins, 2008 rollout eyed

CableLabs has begun testing the first set of DOCSIS 3.0 gear, as five companies have submitted cable modems to the organization for official approval. We’ve seen precertification equipment tested, and some cable ISPs in Asia have rolled out pre-DOCSIS 3.0 equipment, but this is the first set of gear to be tested for compliance with the final DOCSIS 3.0 standard.

COOL! About time.

Err … yay!

100Mps to the hub … and then a crawl across the nation as you compete with 50million other 100Mbps connections saturating the (already) insufficient backbone capacity.

A clear proxy on every corner :wink: Let’s cache the universe with off-peak bandwidth :wink:
[COLOR=White]Actually, this universe already time-shares with three other universes which are also too cheap to pay for spare capacity -> management decision :wink:
