Moving forward we are requiring any customer who is purchasing their own modem to purchase a DOCSIS 3.1 modem or a DOCSIS 3.1 modem/router combo unit.
We have discovered an issue with Motorola MG & MB cable modem/router units. The MG/MB series of Motorola modem/routers are currently unreliable our system, customers should not purchase these units until we have a resolution in place. We have seen great results with the ARRIS Surfboard Gigabit Docsis 3.1 Cable Modem and they seem to be a top seller, but we recommend doing some cost/comparison research and find the proper device for you.
DOCSIS 3.1 is a technology that can provide speeds up to 10 Gbps. Such gigabit level speeds were previously possible only using fiber optic cables. But by implementing it, BELD can provide blazing speeds even over coaxial cables.
