DOCSIS 3.0 Appearing in Europe

Liberty Mutual in the Netherlands and ONO! in Spain have introduced DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem services at speeds of 50 to 100 Mbps. The price of the service ranges from 60 to 80 euros per month. Liberty Mutual said that it plans to introduce DOCSIS 3.0 in the rest of its cable systems across Europe.

This is a strong counter to the inroads that the Telco IPTV services are making in Europe. The DOCSIS 3.0 services have premium prices and premium performance. I think that the same approach will be used in the U.S. with DOCSIS 3.0.
