Out of curiosity, how do you know where these are all located?  I'd kind of like to know a bit more about my area.


here's the point where my cable transitions from fiber to coax and then is split to head down 4 different streets: On the right, the D shaped black box is the fiber termination  to the left is the fiber converter and coaxial distribution amp. bottom right of it is a 2 way splitter or directional coupler. To the left, there's a 4 port tap off block with 3 coax "drops" heading to 3 houses, the 4th port has a terminating resistor screwed in. To the left of that is another 2 way directional coupler/splitter to hit 2 more streets. red id sleeves on lines that don't have the \__/ shapped expansion loops at each pole are fiber optic, the larger bare aluminum or black plastic jacketted ones that do have the \__/  and often a yellow sleeve are coaxial hardlines .TWC uses TWCC printed on the sleeves for ID

 

 

the cables below that are the telco lines, with long splice cases thanks to the tree rodents chewing up the lines.

Not true. Nothing is active in bowling green. The local office looked at me like I was crazy when I went in to exchange my modem. They said the modem I had (arris tg 862) was the latest modem they had and if there were an upgrade coming that modem would work fine. I called and they sent me a technicolor tc 8717t. Got it all hooked up now but no upgrade.

It will probably be months before we see the speed bump lol. It just sux that twc puts out false information and they do not educate the folks working in the local offices.

After the Austin fiasco, I bet they want to see how bad the outside plant is and use you 16 ch modems as guinea pigs.....

then fix the issues before swapping a lot of 1,4,8 ch modems onto them

 

 In austin they turned on 8 channels that had 5000+ customers that had internet only filter traps on their lines that killed at least 6 of the 8 channels resulting in a month long backlog of techs to install the proper filters as well as a shortage of filters...
