A seemingly insatiable demand for streaming and data is putting more strain on broadband suppliers than ever before. It is not inconceivable for a modern home to require speeds of 50Mbps in order to fully experience the range of simultaneous HD video and data streaming on multiple devices such as smart TVs, Blu-ray players, gaming consoles, tablets, smartphones, etc.

Meanwhile, advances in such fields as home health, premises monitoring, remote education and 4K Ultra HD TV could easily see a household needing 100Mbps in the not too distant future.

For telcos, getting past the magic 25-40 Mbps speed barrier has been expensive and difficult. Heavy reliance on copper networks has meant going down the costly route of building all new fiber networks.

Cablecos and their suppliers of DOCSIS are already providing these speeds.

They are confidently offering speeds of up to 100 Mbps over original networks simply by making network gear changes in distribution offices and by installing new modems in homes.
