The Cisco box that you are referring to is the -very- cool UBR7246. Cisco
is also working on many cable system integration projects...can't say
exactly who (NDA), but suffice it to say the UBR gear works wonderfully and
with Road Runners gear capable of doing voice, the last mile issue goes away
in a hurry.

"100 times faster" is also the language used by the cable companies and
vendors of MCNS cable modems to describe their products. $200 price
point and retail availability are also part of that business model. The
"up to" might mean cable modems are one of a number of alternatives
being considered for the last mile. Cisco has made a significant and
apparently successful jump into the cable modem business so I suspect
that's at least part of the plan.

A $200 ADSL modem sounds about right and the billing will most
likely be in
the router/switch you are connected to, not prem-based.
