New Docsis 3.0 standard to allow for 160Mbps+

The new Docsis 3.0 standard has been finalized and it allows for 160Mbps or more downstream and 120Mbps upstream. It also will support IPv6. Of course, in order to support those speeds cable system hardware will need to be upgraded (and cable modems…) so don’t expect those speeds next month. But, perhaps by ~2008?

Our local cable just started advertising 10Mbps as their fastest speed (previous was 5Mbps). I’d personally love to see those upstream speeds upped as well.
