Hathway first provided broadband on Docsis 3.0 platform however is investing in FTTH in newer areas since cisco’s proprietary technology is costlier for developing nations and suits better for developed areas where cost of laying even an overhead cable is costly. For India and developing areas most provider used to lay fresh cable for docsis as existing one is not good enough making it useless on cost basis with ever cheap fiber and splicing costs.
