I did some more searching for my own amusement. Looks like they won't
be ready in my neighborhood for about a year... The modem's are made Bay
Networks..can't remember the exact name, Lan-something.
Here's the cable co's FAQ page:
Looks like the modem can do 10Mbps both ways!! The theoretical max of the
cable seems to be around 30Mbps down, 10Mbps up. However, that said, I
seriously doubt you'd approach that. I've had a hard time finding real
numbers here..and would be interested if you saw any...
