DOCSIS 4.0 Coming

How can we find out where on the list will this be coming to our homes?

"DAVE WATSON     
President & CEO, Comcast Cable

We’re entering the next phase of this industry leadership with DOCSIS 4.0 technology to introduce X-Class Internet products that will revolutionize the way our customers get online today and many years into the future.

Introducing X-Class Internet

Symmetrical 10 Gbps service based on fiber-to-the-home technology is already available in all of Comcast’s markets, and as part of its continued network evolution and the introduction of DOCSIS 4.0, multi-gig symmetrical speeds are rolling out.

New and existing residential customers connected via DOCSIS 4.0 will have access to Comcast’s newly introduced next-generation X-Class Internet portfolio. X-Class speed tiers include X-300 Mbps, X-500 Mbps, X-1 Gbps and X-2 Gbps upload and download speeds and low lag for the ultimate live sports streaming experience on Peacock, smooth connections on work calls, and ultra-responsive gaming."

@cpupro - Xfinity started real world production testing of their new X-Class Internet Service in 3 markets: Colorado Springs, CO., Atlanta, GA and Philadelphia, PA.
Within their N+0 HFC plant configuration, meaning only homes that are directly connected with the last mile Coax to the nearby Fiber Node (with no additional Amplifiers), so their footprint is very-very limited.
That is based on the Comcast Lab presentation published by the CableLabs Video. So, it sounds like, mass deployment of this new DOCSIS 4.0 service won't happen until later in 2025 and beyond...

I wouldn't care about this if Comcast wasn't my only option. But 2025, that stinks.

@bdoyle42 - In the mean time see if you can get the "Mid-Split" upstream upgrade for faster upload speeds, as referenced in this article: https://www.xfinity.com/networkmanagement

as Comcast has been actively upgrading their HFC plants in preparations to the DOCSIS 4.0 deployments.

Hey @bdoyle42,

 

Thank you for visiting our official Xfinity Community Forums support page. It is true that are teams are working tireless working on deploying new technologies to help evolve our network and delivery the best Internet speeds, the best experience possible, and more. We're building this infrastructure over time and neighborhood-by-neighborhood, so it can take quite some time before mass-market availability. You can read our initial article by visiting our 'Comcast Delivers Multi-Gig Symmetrical Speeds in The World's First DOCSIS 4.0 Deployment' press release. If there happens to be anything more we could assist you with, please let us know.

When you go Docsis 4.0, you need to upgrade your routers to WiFi 7 and not 6E.

@kam518 - Actually it all depends on what Speed Tier of X-Class Internet service you select and if you choose to have X-500Mbps and above, the Xfinity will provide a D4 FDX capable Cable Modem, (You'll receive professional setup for speed tiers over 500 Mbps.) and as it's referenced in their fine print (...and Xfinity-provided equipment for X-500 and above tiers is currently not compatible with Storm Ready WiFi...)

@kam518 - XB8 is 6E, so I guess 6E...

I was talking about when they do Docsis 4.0 modem and router, not the XB8.

@kam518​ - here you go: "Comcast unveiled the first gateway, which acts as a modem and router, that supports both its next-generation internet service, called DOCSIS 4.0, and Wi-Fi 7."

Anyone in Bellevue, Wash. have either the x2 or the mid-split upgrade user_noname refers to above?

@need_symmetrical_asap  - Perhaps you should inquire from Xfinity, if your address could get Gigabit Pro x10 service, it's Fiber service with 10Gbps Symmetrical Metro Ethernet service with Juniper ACX2100 Metro Switch. Here is the Wiki link for your perusal.

@need_symmetrical_asap​ I asked about the mid-split upstream in my area, it’s not available in Buckley yet. My area will probably be last ones to get anything in Seattle area
