WAIT! Don’t Replace That Modem or Router Just Yet!

There are some big improvements in modems and routers that are going to appear later this year. Part of that will be the DOCSIS 3.1 standard that will allow for internet speeds of 1-GIGABIT. Comcast has said that speeds up to 10-GIGABIT are even possible using a household modem.
Later this year, Comcast plans to start testing the DOCSIS 3.1 modems and 1-GIGABIT internet in the U.S. and plan to have their entire footprint covered with 1-GIGABIT internet by 2018.

If you can’t wait to replace your modem or router check out the links below.

Nice video. Nice that comcast is making a faster modem, so I can run into my data cap wall faster. (Insert sarcasm here). Death to comcast.

What’s the difference between DOCSIS 3.0 and DOCSIS 3.1?

I have a modem/router combo  from best buy Motorola – N300 Router with DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem. The problem we have is the internet speed is slow. The reason we got this is to avoid monthly payment thought Comcast.    What can I do ? Do you think is a good idea to get and additional modem? Thank you.

The DOCSIS 3.1 rollout is still gonna take awhile, and if you are going to be fine with up to around 250-300 Mbps (depending on your service plan), then go ahead and get a new modem. (or wait for fiber to come to your neighborhood from municipalities or private companies like Google).
