D3 is running in Lakewood, CO and most other metro cities including Aurora

Doesn't do me much good though. Comcast appears to have capped the downstream at 21Mbps - no more huge powerboost. I'm on Blast by the way.

We're supposed to get residential Ultra and Extreme between 3Q and 4Q of this year. Business services already has it and is selling it throughout the metro.

Somewhere, in a metro area to the NE of you, I've been hitting these speeds on an S.A. DPC2505 consistently for about 11 months (all legit, gear/account/bootfile built for 50X5/etc)... Perhaps worth noting is that I did need to tweak my stack a bit (XP SP2) to hit my max - *particularly for the upstream*.  YMMV on the stack tweaking... I've been running this copy of XP for ages, so I wouldn't be surprised if my 'tweaking' was actually just 'fixing' something pre-existing... :)

And FWIW -- Even if your service level only allows you to hit 22Mbps at the moment - you're still getting a huge leg up with the D3 modem [sB6120?] and service... <A> Your area now has 4X the D/S bandwidth available... <B> I doubt there are many others in your area with D3 modems... Meaning those extra 3 channels will be pretty lightly loaded, and available for you to hit your 22Mbps nice and consistent. :)
