1. Will the full 1Gbps be supported, or will the service be "up to 1Gbps"?
2. Will Gigablast use DOCSIS 3.1 when available? Or will it just be FTTH and Ethernet?
3. Any info on what the installation process is like?
4. Does everything transfer over; email, Mcafee, etc?
5. Are all the rules for ports blocked and ToS the same for it?
I live in the Ahwatukee area in Phoenix. I read an article in the AZ Republic last weekend saying some customers in Ahwatukee Foothills have already upgraded to Gigablast. Article didn't say where exactly in Ahwatukee the new Gigablast customers are located. Ahwatukee covers a pretty big area. I've already checked my address for availability on the Gigablast webpage. Says it's not available. How soon will Gigablast be rolled out to the rest of Ahwatukee? I'm definitely signing up as soon as it's available!
When I follow the link in the top post cox.com/GIGLife I get redirected to Cox residential services without so much as a mention of GIFLife, is this indicative of it NOT being available in my area?
Yes. I get the same thing. If you change the Zip code to a area that has it, like AZ, then it changes.
