Rogers Area Modem List

So I might have missed it, but can someone give me the modem list for Rogers area? I'm located at M2H and I bought a Motorola SB6120 approximately half a year ago. I'm looking to leave Tek and joining Start.

Thanks!

Interesting that while some new models were added, several existing ones were removed.

Much shorter list than originally.

EDITED to fix typo : than

Yes a couple new D3 modems added, and some very old legacy D2 modems removed at the request of Big Red.

AFAIK, we haven't had anyone signup with any of the (considerably) older modems. If anyone has one currently in use and wants to keep it during a transfer, just drop me a line and we'll be able to accommodate it, but for new installs please make sure any modems you bring are on the current list.

I signed up with a SB5100, which is now off the list. But I was up and running while it was still on the list

Rocca,

Have you begun issuing the DCM476 modem or are you still exhausting your supply of DCM475 modems?

Maybe you can explain, in layman's terms, what the difference is between the two. I have read this post, »[Cable] Technicolor replaces DCM475 with DCM476 in lineup, but still don't fully understand what the difference means to the average user.

As far as I know, the DCM476 is just the successor to the DCM475 which is likely on the road to EOL. I'd imagine our next batch of DCM47x's will be the DCM476's.

For practical purposes and for most users, I expect they can be treated as equivalent. However...

The DCM475 has two tuners, allowing it to tune to two blocks of 4 channels each, where The DCM476 has only one tuner so all 8 channels must be in one block. That is, on a 475 you can tune to 95-98 and 84-87 to get your 8 channel bonding (channel numbers picked more or less at random). A 476 can only tune to one of those blocks. Presumably still allowing you 4 channel bonding.

There was some discussion here (edit: already linked up thead ):

Too late to edit, but I just noticed that I made a mistake in that last post..

Of course that should have been "presumably still allowing 8 channel bonding." D'oh..
