[TWC] TWC Cable/voice modem buy/lease in Dayton OH

Now that we are being charged with $3.95 per month, does anybody know which eMTA modems are approved for TWC for Dayton OH? I need RoadRunner and Internet voice modem which is eMTA modem and the only things listed on the unhelpful TWC are cable modems without voice. Also is there any way to find out what kind of DOCSIS is running here in Dayton? Thanks for the help

You cannot buy an eMTA and use it with Time Warner at this time. If you are a digital phone subscriber and want to buy your modem instead of rent, you'll have to add another cable line and run two separate modems, one for phone and one for broadband. There is no rental fee changed on phone modems.

If you are considering buying a modem get a D3 one.

That's ridiculous! why do I have to run 2 modems? I have one very outdated modem that TWC provided me 5 yrs ago. SO your telling my I have to keep the old modem and a new modem to run my internet?

Yes, you will need two modems. Your current modem will handle phone service only, and if you would like to purchase your own modem, that will handle the internet. Or you can pay the lease fee and keep your current set up. I’ve had separate modems for data and voice for almost two years now, since Time Warner didn’t initially hand out DOCSIS 3 capable eMTAs, and their still a rarity to find.
