Say Hello To 150Mbps Downloads

May 16th, 2007

InternetLast week Comcast demonstrated a working cable internet system with 150Mbps download speeds. Dubbed DOCSIS 3.0 (current cable systems use DOCSIS 1.1), it’s about 25 time faster than existing cable technology. Large-scale deployment may begin as early as next year. One downside, however is that the 150Mbps is shared amongst households connected to a node, so it’s possible to get much slower speeds.
