Upload Wow, I'm really surprised they confirmed they are doing 65mbps on the upstream. They are really going to be pushing it close to offer that kind of speed given the small amount of spectrum that is available for upstream. (5-42mhz) If my math was correct isn't not unreasonable to estimate upstream for the entire node as ~125mbps (5 6mhz 64QAM channels) plus a few other legacy channels available for older modems. Perhaps they might also be testing out 256QAM or another solution for upstream in those markets....
Downstream shouldn't be an issue as they should have a ton of available channels from the digital transition.
Preach! Maybe they're deploying 256QAM upstream channels and/or S-CDMA? We'll never know here in MI...see »www.lightreading.com/document.as···lr_cable
