Modem Channel Steering

So we have upgraded and added more channel capacity to our CMTS, above 500Mhz. Our plant is old, and poorly built out, we have been upgrading for years but there are still pockets of 440MC and reverse tilts of 15db. Moving beyond that conversation, we have multiple channels in the fm band and lower, old internet only canister filters etc that cut off up to channel 70.

So here is my question, we have a bunch of new plant that can support the uppers, but want to be able to put some customers only in the lower load balancing group.

How can we do this in a modem config file? I know we can point to a specific channel, but can we split load balancing groups and point to that group?

Any help would be greatly appreciated
