OK, let's not call it a scam then. How about creative marketing. I don't even really need the speed upgrade, so Docsis isn't required. This is a way to sell more hardware to the unsuspecting/uneducated public. Shady or not, I'm not a fan of it, I may even not upgrade just to spite them, but they have given me good service and good discounts now that I've paid my dues so to speak, by being a customer for so long.
enaberif, I wouldn't call it being lazy, it's being practical. Would you buy premium gas for a Ford Pinto?
