Was recently looking to buy my own Cable modem to cut the $7/mo fee I'v paid for about 10++ years.
Having Voice, I know I need an eTMA compatible modem.
Was reading Comcast's compatible modem requirements and "end of life' equipment..
So Multi part question:
1) The Comcast Modem they've supplied, I believe is not up to the current tech specs they've listed to achieve max performance. Actually stated significant loss of max speed potential if not current specs..
My voice/data modem: THOMSON DHG536
According to comcast if modem is not DOCSIS 3.0, you will not achieve close to max performance.
Specs show MY Comcast supplied modem is only: DOCSIS 2.0.
It does NOT even appear to have GIGABIT ETHERNET PORT...
Q1a) Should I demand a newer, up to date tech specs, modem?
My supplied modem IS NOT even listed on their fully compatible hardware page....
2) If I choose to purchase MY OWN Voice/Data Modem, to cut the lease fee, which mfr/model would you recommend.?
Comcast has a list of compatible modems, but don't think it's listing any of the voice eMTA modems....
Appears they've ONLY LISTED ARRIS MFR;s, whith BOTH:
IPv6, DOCSIS 3.0
Q2a) Which Voice/Data Modem would you recommend and best prices (optional)... Needs to be IPv6 and COCSIS 3.0 FOR SURE, right; cause I'm NOT buying another in few years!!
Thanks, Hopefully you guys/gals can follow what I'm trying to figure out with my unorganized ramblings
