unless your current modem is no longer supported don't look for cox to replace it. also might depend on tier and how long you have been a customer.

and since cox doesn't allow customer allowed phone modems that I know of you might get a D3 modem if they switch to D3 for phone

Second tier net and been subscriber before there was Cox here in LV. I am planing to add whole house DVR service and I would like to have the modem upgraded and the line levels checked also if I have to pay an $80 installation charge.

they will not give you an upgraded modem. You will have to buy one yourself. what modem do you have?

cox controls the phone modem they do not allow customer owned. when and if they switch to a D3 phone modem will you get a new modem.

I have a D3 DPQ3212. I also had speed inconsistency issues with the old D2 EMTA. You have to lean into them about it if they have them, and not all markets have D3 EMTAs yet.
