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...
