Comcast in '09: 65 percent of footprint with DOCSIS 3.0 (or bust)
DOCSIS 3.0 high-speed internet is only available in a few select metropolitan areas. If the operator has its way, that'll all change in the year 2009. In a release that just makes us giddy inside, Comcast has announced a new goal of reaching "more than 30 million homes and businesses, or 65% of its footprint, this year with superfast wideband speeds running on next-generation DOCSIS 3.0." Oh, and if you're not one with lots of patience, you may appreciate (depending on your location) that DOCSIS 3.0 has now spread to 30 percent of its footprint, or over 15 million businesses and domiciles.
