It’s crazy that we should all have to be expected to toss perfectly functional equipment so that broadband won’t be interfered with.  They really need to come up with a solution that doesn’t require mass consumer waste.

Cable network allows some of the RF spectrum to return for the upstream of

I would imagine the story hypes it a bit, and only people on a single node 
were bumped offline. Not the entire community. Not unless it was some 
kinda bug that turned into a DDoS or something?
