No. You would see a channel labeled as "Other" or as "OFDM / PLC" if you actually have a DOCSIS 3.1 capable modem.. And FWIW, even if you saw that DOCSIS 3.1 carrier, it does not guarantee that the gigabit speed tier would yet be available. Their marketing dept's and their actual field operations have been known to be somewhat out of sync with each other..

 

What is the exact make and model number of your modem ?

Maybe and maybe not. They might just be adding the amount of channels you can use to get your speed. Just wanted to let you know however that one of your upstream levels are out of spec the 4 th one, the third one is boarder line, and the other two are nearing border line.

O/k yep. A 3.1 device. And an OFDM carrier. But even though it is present on the CMTS, and the modem is locked on to it (Channel # 1), it is still listed as being "non-primary".

Doesn't look like it. Even if the OFDM channel was listed as being the "primary", it still wouldn't guarantee that it is turned up yet in your area.
