Comcast Introduces World’s First Live DOCSIS 3.1 Gigabit Class Modem

Comcast announced yesterday that it has installed its first DOCSIS 3.1 modem in a home in the Philadelphia area. The press release goes on to say that the company is testing the technology in Pennsylvania, California and Atlanta as well.

At a home in the Philadelphia area, we took the next important step forward in delivering gigabit speed broadband over our hybrid fiber coaxial network. The test used the standard cable connections that we have in homes across the country. All we needed was a new modem, a software upgrade to the device that serves that neighborhood, and a few good engineers.
