How-To: Boost internet speeds and save money by purchasing a Modem

Buying a new modem (http://amzn.to/1RNlS8Z) can possibly save you money each month and result in much faster internet speeds. I upgraded to an SB6190, and go double the speed with no extra charges from Time Warner.

Thanks Jeff.  My cable company wanted me to change to the Aries and I wanted to make sure about it.  I don’t think the wifi should be affected, but just in case let me know.  Great video.

What’s a good gateway that does the same?

Great tip, I just upgraded to the 100 meg package, but I’m just on a DOCSIS 2 modem. I was looking to get an 8 channel modem, but I think I’m going to go with the modem you showed off. I’m even doing my speed test in the same area as shown in your video. Hopefully I’ll have similar results.

Quick question: Does this modem work with optimum voice? I’ve heard it only works for the internet component but not if you have voice service too through twc’s optimumonline?

I had this modem before I had to change it back to the sb6183 due to the sb6190 constantly dropping the connectivity.

Fred Zlotnick says:

You are not likely to see much difference between 100 Mbps and 200 Mbps. I have fiber optics with up to 1 Gbps, not much difference in everyday use compared to 50 Mbps. I recommend no one upgrade unless they are doing critical work and the speeds are super important. If you are getting 100 Mbps, wait a year or two before upgrading, the prices will be lower and there will be newer features. If you are getting less than 50 Mbps upgrade. Except for people who send Youtube videos upstream, not many people care about upstream, I have > 500 Mbs upstream on fiber and it makes no difference to me.

Josue Diaz says:

You said you were on 30MBPS right? I’m on 75MBPS & my ping is 14
download is 61.55 & upload is 12.55 by getting this system will it increase my upload mpbs?

Samuel F says:

Hi i have a question, if the internet service provider said your internet modem must have a minimum of 16 channels of downstream and a minimum of 4 channels for upstream… Can I get a modem that supports up to 16 down and 4 up?

FLT1979 says:

They DO charge you for the extra speed. There’s no way they wouldn’t charge you. They are charging my brother $20 extra per month for the 200mbps. However, he isn’t getting that speed, even though the modem he has supports it. I have spoken with several people, and we have found that the cable company (Time Warner/Spectrum), has given customers modems that only work with 100mbps, but are charging them for the 200mbps.
