Splitter Frequency - 1GHz? 2.5 GHz? Confused ...

I have been looking at CATV splitters. Many of the latest "passive" splitters, that say they support HDTV, are rated up to 2.3 or 2.5 GHz. I think I need an amplified solution, but most of those splitters seem to only go up to around 1GHz (1005 MHz). Yet some claim they are HDTV ready.

Can anyone sort this out? What bandwidth is needed for HDTV? Is the 2.5 GHz an HDTV requirement or perhaps an internet requirement for those getting internet through their cable provider (I only receive HDTV - my cable comes through my phone co)?

Anyone have any good white papers or web sites that explain these different upper frequency limits and what they are good/needed for?

Many thanks!
