Comcast Introduces 50mbps DOCSIS 3.0

Comcast has introduced a 50 mbps DOCSSIS 3.0 broadband data service in the Minneapolis-St. Paul region. The service supports 50 mbps downstream and 5 mbps upstream. It is using Cisco CMTS systems for this service.

This rollout is typical of how DOCSIS 3.0 services will be rolled out. DOCSIS 3.0 systems are still going through CableLab certification. The rollout of DOCSIS 3.0 services will be limited until that takes place. DOCSIS 3.0 services are likely to be high priced premium services designed to establish market leadership rather than a mass market service in the early stages.
