Which modem should I buy?

We require any customer who is purchasing their own modem to purchase a DOCSIS 3.0 modem or above.

If you are purchasing your own modem and have decided you want to purchase a DOCSIS 3.1 modem, DO NOT purchase a Motorola modem—BELD does not support DOCSIS 3.1 Motorola modems. Note that 3.0 Motorola modems work fine on our system, but Motorola 3.1 modems do not. 

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.
