When buying your home router have you ever stop to ask what some of the abbreviations mean? One of these is DOCSIS (Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification), which is the technology standard that helps to determine your broadband speed. As cable operators delay the role out of FTTH (Fibre To The Home) and try to get more speed out of copper wire, you will need a gateway router that support these latest standard to take advantage of the speed improvements.
