What happened? Comcast has successfully tested the Broadcom 10G modem, which delivers upload and download speeds of up to 4Gbps. The complete DOCSIS 4.0 Duplex System On-Chip (SoC) cable modem used in the experiment was a prototype and was connected to a laboratory laboratory fiber coaxial network. Comcast said this is the first complete network connection of all DOCSIS 4.0 components required for deployment.
The ISP also noted that DOCSIS 4.0 will be compatible with connections already installed in hundreds of millions of homes around the world, so you don't have to worry about infrastructure support. p>
Comcast's results are sure to be great, but that's just the tip of the iceberg. As developers refine the technology, the speed is expected to increase dramatically. However, the name of this initiative is 10G and its ultimate goal is to provide 10Gbps internet speed. p>
Comcast has recently made significant progress on the project. By comparison, a similar test in October 2020 could achieve a steady speed of just 1.25Gbps over a residential connection. Unfortunately, Comcast didn't say when 10G might be available. Since they are not yet at the halfway point of the project velocity goal, it may take some time for the service to become commercially available. Those looking for the fastest connection possible should be satisfied with everything that is currently available in their area. For me personally, it seems to be 1200Mbps. p>
