Re: [TWC] New Modem Lease Fee NYC First of all, I think Time Warner is a total piece of $hit for giving me less than two weeks notice about this new charge after years of having their service. They suck!
For those that need a list of 'approved' modems go to www.twc.com and type in "compatible modem list" in their search box and look at the document called "buy or lease your modem" (ironically if you search for "buy or lease your modem" the document does not appear). This document will display a complete list of compatible modems for your area.
If you have their slower cable internet offerings ("lite", "basic", or "standard") then you are fine with a DOCSIS 2.0 modem. If you have one of their faster internet offerings ("turbo", "extreme", or "ultimate") then you need DOCSIS 3.0 modem. See their list for complete details.
