Internet faster and faster … with cable.
A new standard approder within the year to speed up the speed of cable-modems. Fruit of the CableLabs laboratories, the new DOCSIS 2.0 system – Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification (which uses A / TDMA – Advanced Frequency Agile Time Division Multiple Access and S / CDMA Synchronous Code Division Multiple Access which not derived from CDMA technology born after Qualcomm a decade ago), just certified, will significantly increase the bandwidth available in upstream transmissions: it is calculated that overall speed can thus triple. cable operators have the possibility of bandwidth between 500 Kbps and 2 Mbps even if end users have limitations on the amount of upstream data (the most popular operators in the USA limit shipping to 128 Kbps). You could see the first certified equipment before the end of 2002 or at the beginning of 2003 at the latest.
