Re: [PLUG] Comcast Internet

I have the 6120 and it works fine.  In this area, if you get what used to be called "Blast" it's now 50mb/s down and 15mb/s up.  I have the extreme service using this modem and routinely get 100mb/s transfers over scp down, and over 20mb/s up.
I think that the 6120 has been superceded by the 6121, however.

Thanks for the help on this.  I was looking at the Motorola SB6120 SURFboard DOCSIS 3.0 eXtreme Broadband Cable Modem.  This might be overkill for a lower speed Internet cable connection but it has gotten great reviews. It would pay for itself in a year of Comcrap lease fees.  The only downside is that if it were to fail I would be down until I got a new one on my own. No big deal as I could probably get a new one and get it up faster than Comcast would anyway.

Any comments on this modem or a better choice? I have assumed this modem would work with Comcast. I would have to check that before buying.
