We’ve covered the benefits of owning your own cable modem in the past, which can save you $120 or more each year (based on $10/mo. rental fee). At that rate, you’ll easily pay for your cable modem purchase in a few months. Each of the options in today’s sale are compatible with mainstream service providers like Comcast/Xfinity, Cox, Time Warner, and more. Note: we do recommend confirming with your ISP. These modems feature DOCSIS 3.0 technology, so you’ll be receiving some of the fastest consumer speeds available. A 90-day warranty from the manufacturer is included with every model.

As part of Motorola’s DOCSIS 3.0 Ultra-Broadband family of products, the SB6121 includes an enhanced tuner that supports up to a 1 GHz downstream input, which allows operators to increase the frequency spectrum for deployment of new high-value services–such as bandwidth on-demand, commercial services, interactive gaming, and IPTV. The SB6121 features a 10/100/1000Base-T Ethernet (RJ-45) port, as well as intuitive, easy-to-read front-panel operational status LEDs. With the DOCSIS 3.0 specification, cable Internet providers can take advantage of the extra capacity provided by channel-bonding technology in order to offer ultra-fast broadband services. Channel bonding allows parallel data pipes to act as a single broadband conduit.
