When the tech was here replacing my outdoor splitter, he put in an XB3... I don't know all the wifi standards:

Cable operator Comcast has deployed ARRIS Group’s TG1682 DOCSIS 3.0 gateway for its XB3 service to improve customer experience.
Comcast XB3 service will enable gigabit wireless speeds, IP video technology and integrated home automation and security capabilities to subscribers.
ARRIS TG1682 DOCSIS 3.0 residential voice gateway combines 24DS channel bonding, two analog voice lines, a 4-port Gigabit Router, MoCA 2.0 for superior in home coverage, and a Dual Band 802.11ac wireless access point into a single integrated device.


---------


these xb3's are being used to provide ubiquitous hotspots as well.


one final point, Comcast is building out a deep fiber network and DOCSIS 3.1 1Gig devices by mid-year. it'll be a while to get to your local neighborhood, but it's coming.

"Deep Fiber" means fiber out to your local loop, though technically there is no need to run fiber into the home to obtain whatever speed is necessary/desired. So
they are not doing the fiber-to-the-home thing like FIOS.

Last, IP Video is coming so all your video devices are going to be upgraded. Net of all this is the unbalanced up/download speed will be a thing of the past, even
though most people couldn't tell the difference even if they tried

An outdoor splitter in not uncommon from what I have seen.
Had one installed where I use to live 15 years ago. They always wanted a good feed off the main line for the modem. In my case it was easy to split it outside before it came in.

I believe that's what they did here at some point prior to my owning this house.

still, one would think it would've been mounted in a weather proof box. Problem for me surfaced during that wet-glop snow we had during the NL playoffs 2 weeks before SB50.

Comcast employees get paid time off to protest (or support) Trump

PHILADELPHIA ? One of the nation?s largest telecommunications and media conglomerates is offering its employees paid time off to protest President Donald Trump.

A spokesman for Comcast said Wednesday that employees are free to use the time to to express any opinion they wish, whether they are for or against the president?s policies.

?We understand that some of our employees are concerned and we respect their desire to express their opinions,? spokesman John Demming said. Employees get time off for personal use.

Just wanted to followup... we had (yet another) reorg this week and lo and behold... the Chief Technical Officer who "organized" the protest, uh, "left" comcast for "personal reasons"

When he heard of this, Trump said "Bye Bye"
