Re: How to lease SB6141?

said by cramer:

Sure. You'll be going without service until you upgrade to a wideband package, or TWC stops deploying DOCSIS 2 hardware entirely.

Not really true. TWC requires Turbo and above to use Docsis 3 modem. If you were to rent the modem, you can request a Docsis 3 modem, however, the SB6141 might not be available in your Division but there's nothing wrong if you ask for it.

When did they change their mindpolicy on that?

The bottom line still stands... you get whatever they've got on the truck; you can ask for a 6141 but that doesn't mean you'll end up with one. (and they aren't going to send someone out to swap out a working, supported modem.)

Since they start charging for rentals, they required turbo to use D3 modems. It makes sense to ask for a D3 modem if you are paying for rental. The OP can go to a TWC office and swap for a D3 modem.

I think they changed their policy when they bumped the download speed for Turbo up to 20 Mbps.
