Comcast Deploying Upstream Channel Bonding

The  DOCSIS 3.0 cable broadband standard allows channels to be bonded (or combined) for higher data (Internet) bandwidth. Cable providers like Comcast have been testing upstream channel bonding for a while now with upstream speeds up to 75Mbps demonstrated in labs.

Looking at the DSL Reports Forum, it appears there has been some deployment randomly by Comcast in California, Florida and Indiana. I'll be watching for this at my home in Massachusetts!

Very nice!!
