What are you expecting/hoping from VM in 2018?

So it's nearly the new year, what are you expecting/hoping VM to deploy in 2018?

Expecting:
  • 4x upstream channels, preferably at 64QAM
  • A firmware fix for the Hub 3
  • If no fix, then release of the (Super)Hub 4
  • Rollout of IPv6?

Hoping:
  • Docsis 3.1 trials

I'm sure there's other things that are probably in the pipeline.

I concur with your list, but I'd expect those 4x upstream channels to translate in an improved upstream speed of at least 10:1. , thus 350Mb would have an up speed of at least 35Mb.

I hope to see an upstream increase of speed.

I don't, it would be nice but Igni has said recently that VM (Liberty Global) have no plans whatsoever to do any upstream increases and bring the tiers to 10:1.

I have a strong feeling that trials of DOCSIS 3.1 are already happening, and people are already on it on >400mbit products, restricted by NDA.

Docsis 3 can cope with a fair chunk more than 400mb

What makes you thinks that 400mb is the top end of the trial speeds? #justsaying

Re: What are you expecting/hoping from VM in 2018?

I would put my money on 500mbits atm, it is the next sensible jump. Going from 350 to 400 isnt worth the time.

Especially now that BT is rolling out 300Mb. I get almost 400mb on the 350Mb product anyway.

Should probably change that to hoping. As in I hope they just take a known, working, off the shelf, Broadcom based cable gateway/router.

In reality, I'm expecting it to be the cheapest possible tat, that sort of "works".

Docsis 3.1. IPv6. 1000Mbps down. 200Mbps up.

Hopes don't have to be realistic :p

Hoping for 300/350 to become available at some point in the near future.
