The net result here is that it will boost cable modem speeds by up to 200%. Speaking as a cable modem user, I'm ecstatic, of course, but at the same time this kinda cracks me up. I'm currently capped at 1.5Mbps downstream and 384Kbps upstream; I'm not exactly crying myself to sleep at night. But these guys are working on the fundamental assumption that cable modems aren't fast enough. To quote Vincent Vega, "That's a bold statement." I like it. This is the bandwidth equivalent of Carmack getting his Ferrari F50 and saying "Not fast enough. Stick on some turbochargers."
