Works. Speedtest rating when modem is plugged directly into desktop exceeds the 60MB/sec download speed I'm paying for.
Beats paying the $5/mo "discounted" rate my ever more greedy friends at Optimum recently introduced--with the shameless assurance that I saving on this "temporarily" reduced price. For years, I'd been an Optimum customer and the modem was part of the service price that has now more than doubled. Gotta love it when they rob you and out of the other side of their mouths profess "thanks for your loyalty." Can't wait to see what the death of net neutrality will bring to my Optimum bill.
Some of the comments here bemoaned the heat from this modem. I haven't had it through a summer yet, but from the fall through now I haven't had any issues.
