According to a report by Heavy Reading indicates that some deployment has slowed down with the economy – but the following are moving forward with plans.
Comcast has been most prominent in their plans to upgrade to Docsis 3.0; they plan to serve all customers by mid2010.
Mediacom has been testing it in employee homes – apparently supporting speeds of 100-Mbit/s. It doesn’t sounds as if they are planning to offer those speeds to customers – but 50 Mbit/s or 60 Mbit/s does sounds like the right market. The article in Cable Digital News doesn’t specify which communities will get the Docsis bump but in Minnesota, Mediacom serves Cloquet, Proctor, Eveleth, Hibbing, Franklin, Gaylord, Grand Rapids, Prior Lake, St Peter, Worthington, Two Harbors, Silver Bay, and Hoyt Lakes.
Knology offers Docsis 3.0 to 20 percent of their customers now. They are hoping to bump up to 70 percent by the end of the year and reach all customers by the end of 2010. Knology serves the following Minnesota communities (as PrairieWave) Adrian, Currie, Ellsworth, Edgerton, Jasper, Lake Wilson, Luverne, Marshall, Pipestone, Slayton, Tracy, and Worthington.
