Best Cable Modem Without Phone Jack

April 19, 2022

You do not need a phone jack or phone line to get Internet in your home. While making use of leftover phone lines is one way to get an Internet connection, it’s not the only way and is an outdated practice. With a cable modem, you can make use of the coaxial cable wiring (from Cable TV services) to get extremely fast Gigabit Internet. Once the cable modem is set up, you can add a router for WiFi to connect your devices.


Why does a modem have a phone jack?

If your modem has a phone jack it is because it can be set up using the copper phone lines in your home. While you can still get Internet this way, DSL is on its way out the door and is outdated. Modems equipped with a coaxial cable connection will provide a very reliable and fast Internet connection.

Coaxial cable wiring is designed to handle bandwidth-hungry video traffic, which makes it perfect for providing super-fast, uninterruptable Internet connectivity to your home. A cable modem will create very high-speed Internet connection, and when you use a DOCSIS 3.1 cable modem, it’s capable to providing Gigabit speeds to your connected devices.


Coaxial vs Phone Line (DSL)

Coaxial cable used by cable TV providers has greater bandwidth than phone lines. A greater bandwidth means faster Internet. That’s what makes a coaxial network better than phone line.


The Best Cable Modem

So, what’s the best cable modem, then? Well…that depends on your needs and preferences. Consider the following when researching cable modem features first:

  • Is your current cable modem out of date?
  • The speeds you need
  • Compatibility with your Internet service provider (ISP)
