Cable Modem Inventor Rouzbeh Yassini Discusses Road Ahead For Broadband

Quote:
By Todd Spangler -- Multichannel News, 11/25/2008 5:00:00 AM

Rouzbeh Yassini, inventor of the cable modem, doesn’t see bandwidth demand leveling off anytime soon.

As Comcast begins rolling out DOCSIS 3.0-based "wideband" services that provide up to 50 Mbps, he is already anticipating Gigabit-per-second broadband connections that deliver more than 20 times that. Yassini, founder and CEO of YAS Broadband Ventures, which engages in consulting, research and investments, spoke recently with Multichannel News technology editor Todd Spangler.

Multichannel News: The first cable modems ran at less than 100 Kbps. Today, DOCSIS 3.0 provides 160 Mbps downstream and 120 up -- and more. Did you anticipate cable modems would evolve to these capacities?

The manager of my town owned cable service told me we are changing over to DOCSIS 3.0, so hopefully I can get some of that speed soon.

And now we know how Comcast plans to pay for the new corporate jet and golf holidays.....

Found a site that says the new services will be $63/mo for the 22 Mbps service and $140/mo for the 50Mbps. Holy cow!!!!

With speeds like that, pirates will be able to download an entire studio's collection in under a day.

Hell, with upload speeds like that it could take an hour with the right compression on the files!


Wonder if the entertainment industry is happy with these speeds.

Could that be why Western countries are so far behind the Asia in bandwidth speed?
