Is anybody interested in MoCA 2.5 adapter?

Hi, we are studying the market of MoCA ethernet adapter. Looks like only very few vendors are supplying MoCA ethernet adapters, such as Actiontec, Motorola and Tivo. Now all the products are based on MoCA 2.0, and the Price is too high. For example, a couple of MoCA 2.0 adapters can be high to $168, https://www.amazon.com/Actiontec-Bonded-Ethernet-Adapter-ECB6200K02/dp/B013J7O3X0 (Note: Link simplified by moderator edit.)
Now the new generation of MoCA, MoCA2.5 appears. For MoCA2.5, it can reach 2.5Gbps for the coax network. If you put 4 adapters in your house, they will share the 2.5Gbps bandwidth. For bonded MoCA2.0, it only provide 1Gbps bandwidth. So from MoCA2.0 to MoCA2.5, it is a great achievement.
We are wondering, if we build MoCA2.5 adapter and try to limit the price to less than $120 one couple, is anybody interested in it?
Thanks for your comments.

Merry Christmas!

It means buying into cable in the home. Many homes aren't wired like that and newer WiFi seems fine.

Yes, looks like many new houses don't provide coax cable connections. MoCA is not reasonable for these buildings. We know that many newer Wi-Fi, such Netgear Orbi, Google Wi-Fi, EERO, Plume. They provide Wi-Fi Mesh functions. The question is, their price is too high. Maybe a cheaper Wi-Fi extender can resolve the coverage issue. We just need a more easy-configurable, user-friendly Wi-Fi extender.

Not here.

Here the usual mesh products are not overpriced. I do see in Taiwan, Thailand and such they do cost more. Linus of Linustechtips did a video about that recently.

Yes, some low price Mesh products based on MTK or Realtek chips. Have you tested some of them?

Only my friends have.

In reply to: @R. Proffitt

I don't need the mesh products here in 99% of the setups so I rely on my friends and reviewers like Linus.

MoCA 2.5

In reply to: Is anybody interested in MoCA 2.5 adapter?

Yes - definitely interested as my current MoCA is running ~300Mbps and would love to upgrade to nearly 10 times that for a few hundred bucks. I can't wait to see these made available to consumers (vice "Service Providers" only).

Thanks for your input. We just want to make useful products for people. We don't want to provide them to Service Providers, then to end customer. That will increase the final price.

I have seen several sites were people express frustration over the Actiontec ECB6250 not being available to consumers. I'm one of them.

Would buy a decent quality set for more than $120

If you have

4 switches in the house , if you only have one device in use does the device you're using get the full 2.5 Gbps ?

This really seems spammy to me ..

Yes!

Yes, that would be awesome.
For older houses, Coax is already in the building, and its MASSIVELY better than EthernetOverPower.
Sure I can do WiFi repeaters, but it's hard to beat actual wires!
I went through everything last year and ended up with a Motorola MM1000 - hands down the best performance I've been able to get.

Very interested in MoCA 2.5

In reply to: Is anybody interested in MoCA 2.5 adapter?

YES, our company is very interested to distribute Internet to multi-dwelling units such as hotels, time-shares, and condominiums. Many of these buildings do not have Ethernet, but do have RG6 coax. We need a head-end that supports up to 8 clients. Client isolation is mandatory. Ideally, isolation is built into the moca client and VLANs are not required. Our typical application is 50-100 clients.

I built a house in 2010 and had coax and ethernet run to eight rooms. Fios came several years ago and I obtained it but can only get internet and phone from them. I have gone from cable TV to Satellite Tv to streaming over Wi-Fi. Can I use one MoCA 2.5 or a pair from the distribution book that is over 100 ft on the other side of the house from the ONT? Wi-Fi is weak in the basement and on the 2nd floor furthest away for the router.
