DOCSIS 3.0 Deploment Begins

By Dave

Ask any geek what his dream is when it comes to the Internet, and one of the first responses they will probably give is a faster connection. DOCSIS 3.0, a standard that promises more speed for cable Internet users is already being rolled out. Originally scheduled for 2009, Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota have become the first markets to test out the new technology.

The speeds promise 50Mbps down, and 5Mbps up, and that will allow you to download a 4GB DVD quality movie in about ten minutes.

The upgrade in speed will set you back a wallet-hurting $149.95 per month, but with Hulu, Skype, and other online services, do we really need subscription television and phone service any longer?

And here I am all excited about finally getting a 10Mbps service here in Ontario, Canada.
