Re: Occasional disconnects, modem losing bonding to all four upstream channels

The Hawaii franchise area is now using channels above 900 MHz for internet service, which rmakes replacment of all RG-59 wiring with RG6-QS cable mandatory (RG59 exhibits high loss above 500 MHz).  Cables with any kinks or very tight bends where they exit the connector shell will exhibit abnormally high reflectance and do not work reliably on the upper frequencies.  It actually begins around 700 MHz and gets visibly worse in the uncorrected errors column on the highest channels.
