Re: [OOL] can i use my own modem

Frankly, that information is garbage.

What model of Motorola modem & Arris modem do you have?

What? Is this a troll? Unless an actual modem is defective, there really is no point to buy your own when one is provided for you.

To answer your question....sure buy your own docsis modem and CV will provision it.

When OOL first came out they required you to purchase your own modem. I bought mine at The Wiz.

Motorola modems are in the 6000 range. All the voice-enabled modems I can find for purchase are only capable of 4 downstream channel bonding (I may not be seeing some models though, it was a quick search & additional check on motorola's site). That is why I said probably a downgrade.

Perhaps, but oil heat was much better than coal.

What does that have to do with Cablevision?
