If your cable Internet provider supports it, then this is an excellent choice for a modem.
on January 5, 2016
I picked up this modem as I had a 2-in-1 (modem & router) that got aged and started flaking out on me. And unfortunately, the model I had could only be managed by the cable company (updates and what have you). I decided to get new equipment and go back to the good old days where my modem and router were completely separate for multiple reasons, 1) if one goes I can replace it without having to replace the whole setup, and 2) if nothing else I can go back to being able to manage my router on my own.
I picked this up along with the Netgear Nighthawk AC1900 router. The combination of the pair are phenomenal. I now actually get the speeds I pay for, and my internal network is blazing.
With it's multiple downstream and upstream channels, we can have everyone on their individual devices doing things like gaming and streaming without even the slightest blip in content continuity.
The only thing I'd say to be aware of is that if you're buying your own router, double-check that it's supported by your cable Internet provider first.
All in all, this router does everything I wanted it to.
