10Mbps versus 100Mbps Cable Modems

This is right off the cable internet service providers website.
Plan Name Plan Type (Speed Max) (Speed Min)
Exceed 788 Residential 384 kbps 32 kbps
Exceed 1350 Residential 512 kbps 64 kbps
Exceed 2000 Comm w/o IP 768 kbps 128 kbps
Exceed 3500 Comm w/o IP 1024 kbps 192 kbps
Exceed 4000 Comm w/ IP 1024 kbps 192 kbps
So 10Mbps = 10240kbps and 1024kbps = 1Mbps
Then a 10Mbps cable modem can feed their network faster
than even the fastest service plan they offer.
Do I have correct understanding now?

They probably did it because the number of subscribers
has increased to the point that they need to start
limiting bandwidth to ensure that everyone gets their
fair share. They probably allowed subscribers to
exceed their allotted max bandwidth while the number
of subscribers was sufficiently low that they did not
have to worry about it. Now that they have a lot of
subscribers, they have to worry about it.
