Upstream bonded channels unlocked
We just switched from the rentable Comcast modem to the Motorola MT7711 modem router combo. Paying for gigabit download and 35 Mbps upload speeds. The new modem is compatible with Xfinity and has gigabit download speeds and up to ~250 Mbps upload speeds. Our down is averaging ~400 Mbps on ethernet. Upload is averaging 4 Mbps on both ethernet and wireless.
The Xfinity brand rentable modem had the same download speeds but reached an average of 40 Mbps upload.
I was checking the connection and all downstream channels were locked (24 total). Upstream channels only had 5 locked and 3 unlocked, completely unused (8 total).
Is there a reason three upstream channels are unlocked? Is the new modem/router the reason there is a discrepancy between what we are paying for in upload speed and what we are getting?
