Why 35 Mbps? Why the archaic limitations for absurd prices? No more artificial limits.
Why is upload limited to 35 Mbps? This makes no realistic sense. DOCSIS 3.1 specifies for up to no limit, based on bondable channels, which in my case would be 4 actively bonded based on my signal stats page and capable of up to 32x8 bonding (1Gbps x 200 Mbps). 4 upload bonds in docsis 3.0 is capable of up to ~100 Mbps. Considering the exceptional amount of bandwidth available due to the base frequency configuration of docsis 3.0 and 3.1 There's no good reason I shouldn't be able to get more upload speed. And don't say it's because its technically infeasible. Mediacom regularly achieves 50 Mbps and bursts up to 70 Mbps upload with no issue. What is the reason Cox will not provide more bandwidth capability when the capacity exists there? With todays ever growing file sizes and call home applications and offsite computer backup software, it's taking AGES to process even a single backup for my household. Is this an issue at the CMTS? Is there not enough capacity between the CMTS's and the actual routing backbone? We have 400 Gbps fiber and optics. We have equipment that can handle that type of routing throughput, at reasonable cost mind you. If you don't start preparing for the future, upgrading the core, fixing the idiosyncracies. You will get left in the dust and other companies will provide better options at cheaper prices. There's no excuse for these archaic limitations in this day and age.
To those that don't know much about the actual infrastructure used by ISP's starting with reading some of DOCSIS documentation would be a good place to become a more informed consumer. Demand better of those that provide you services.
