The article reports on the bandwidth switching mechanism incorporated by U.S. cable providers in their broadband transmission services. According to the author, the new method allows the broadband to restore and renew its allocated bandwidth frequency to support larger demand in voice and data transmission . In addition, the mechanism directs the transmission of data to right away proceed to the packet allocated by the network, thus, minimizes network congestion and data speed downstream.
