Comcast tests tech that enables gigabit upload speeds over cable

In a statement, Comcast exec Tony Werner said “The great strength of our network technology is that we will have the ability to scale these next-generation speeds to tens of millions of homes in the future without digging up yards, or starting massive construction projects. This technology provides a path to meeting the needs of the future and making multi-gigabit symmetrical speeds a reality for everyone, not just a select few.”

With fiber to the home still not available everywhere, this might be your best shot at getting major upgrades to your upload speed, but even when it rolls out, we’ll need to see some expansion of that 1.2Tb bandwidth cap to get any use out out of it.
