What is the upper bandwidth limit on Cable modem?
I get around 1860Kb/s
adelphia offers 3Mb downstream for normal accounts and 4Mb for commercial ($90/mo)
my service will be turned on this week :happydance:
you're going to be capped by your ISP so the max a cable line / cable modem can reach doesn't matter. It's well over what your ISP will allow so I would worry more about the speed your ISP gives you then anything else.
Cable lines vary depending on the type. I know they've come out with really high end coaxial cable that can reach 1.5Gb/s which sounds insane (because it is). I don't know what type of cable is standard for households because i'm no cable expter, but the limits of it are really high in comparison to the 1.5 - 5Mb/s your isp will give you.
As far as modems go that also varies, there's so many different kinds it's hard to say what the max is because they are all a little different. my bung smells like poo.
I average 5Mb/s for less then $70 a month (and it includes cable tv)
~40 megabits/sec using 256QAM on a 6mhz channel.
I usually get 3.1Mb/s for $40/month.
3Mb/s down, 512Kb/s up for $50. I can't stand cable TV, so I get shafted.
