Re: [Speed] Is the Zoom 5341J worth the upgrade
I had the same debate and just pulled the plug on a 5341J and it is sitting on my desk ready to be provisioned. The modem is "not" future proof. Good for three or more years, maybe. Next year there will be 16x4 or 16x8 modems and beyond that 32 etc.
I know there are 8 pipes in my area so it makes sense to make use of them all as more video streaming becomes prolific from TVs, computers, mobile, and other devices. Not only inside my home but the shared bandwidth outside which could slow 4x4 modem.
My 6120 currently is getting 4x3 connections. I am testing the new Blast 50meg service and getting +/- 50/10. So I hope self provisioning will not kill my service.
Just ran this on my 6120:
I will post an update on the 5341J. I would expect it would be similar...I hope.
