Comcast customers take note: Comcast successfully tests 10G cable modem network

From VentureBeat:

Comcast has successfully tested 10G data transfer on its cable modem network. That’s a step on the road to providing 10-gigabit-per-second internet bandwidth in both directions on its cable network.

Comcast said its team conducted what it believes to be the world’s first test of a 10G connection from the company’s network to a modem. To do this, the team activated a virtualized cable modem termination system (vCMTS) powered by Full Duplex DOCSIS 4.0 technology.

Elad Nafshi, senior vice president for next generation networks at Comcast Xfinity, said in an interview with VentureBeat that the company has been working on 10G technology over the past 18 months with the goal of delivering the next generation of speed and performance to hundreds of millions of people worldwide.

This week, the company is celebrating the milestone at its annual 10G event at the Virtual SCTE Cable-Tec Expo 2021 event. Whatever you think of 10G, it sounds better than 5G, which mobile phone companies are touting as competition for broadband in the home.
