Comcast hit download speeds of 6Gbps over cable in a recent ‘10G’ test

plans to begin live testing of its symmetric 10G multi-gigabit internet services later this year before offering it to customers in 2023. The company has been boosting home Internet speeds over the past few years over the existing cable network. The final piece of the puzzle seems to be coming together.

The original goal was to reach speeds of 10 Gbps and beyond, and Comcast is getting close to that benchmark. It recently tested the final component required to offer 10G and DOCSIS 4.0 powered symmetric multi-gigabit speeds across its network. In the test, conducted with newly designed (FDX) amplifiers, the engineers achieved download speeds of 6 Gbit/s and upload speeds of 4 Gbit/s “across a complete cascade of six amplifiers”. Download speed is 50 percent faster than Comcast.

“This architecture encompasses the vast majority of the Comcast network and is easy and quick to replicate where network environments can vary,” Comcast said. “Therefore, successful testing is key to delivering 10G to all Comcast customers.”

This month, Comcast in four states. However, upload speeds are initially limited to 200 Mbps on the Gigabit 2x plan. When Comcast starts offering 10G services next year, users will theoretically be able to download and upload files at multi-gigabit speeds. The company aims to provide 2 Gbps service to more than 50 million US homes by the end of 2025.
