I thought digital cable might go over the 1 GHz threshold.
Been awhile since my MSO days, so someone else might have a more exacting answer. As I remember, that spectrum was all that was allocated for those purposes per the FCC. With DBS gobbling up 1 to 2.3 GHz (plus 11-13 GHz on the downstream before the LNBf) there may be issues with an MSO trying to broadcast within the same spectrum.
As for other uses of a high frequency splitter; Distribution for L-Band (stacked) DBS systems is the first thing that comes to mind. You can also (kids please
don't try this at home) split the signal off of each leg of an LNB prior to going into a pair
of multi switches. I'm sure someone has even more uses, those are just the most common ones I can think of.
