Comcast Demos Hyper Speed Cable Modem Technology

Making use of Channel Bonding, which itself is not really a new technology, a demo of a damn bloody fast cable modem was showcased by Comcast CEO Brian Roberts at The Cable Show Convention in Las Vegas. The AP covered this event and made the following observation:

In the presentation, ARRIS Group Inc. chief executive Robert Stanzione downloaded a 30-second, 300-megabyte television commercial in a few seconds and watched it long before a standard modem worked through an estimated download time of 16 minutes.

Stanzione also downloaded the 32-volume Encyclopaedia Britannica 2007 and Merriam-Webster’s visual dictionary in under four minutes, when it would have taken a standard modem three hours and 12 minutes.

Amazing how broadband technology has evolved in the last couple of years. Unfortunately for us Malaysians, we might never experience such technologies… so long as TM holds its choking monopoly on the local broadband market.
