Comcast unveils gigabit modem

Thursday 7 May 2015 | 14:09 CET | News
Comcast has unveiled a new gigabit modem. The DOCSIS 3.1 modem will go into production this year and become available to customers in early 2016. When combined with a DOCSIS 3.1-enabled network, the Gigabit Home Gateway will be capable of delivering speeds greater than 1 Gbps. Working with the existing Hybrid Fiber Coaxial network, the gateway will be able to deliver gigabit speeds to virtually all Xfinity customers once the DOCSIS 3.1 networking standard is deployed nationally. To support near-term deployment, the Gigabit router is also fully backward compatible with the DOCSIS 3.0
