If you’re like most people, you rely on the internet for just about everything. You use it to stay connected with friends and family, do your work or school assignments, and maybe even run your business. So, when your internet is slow or unreliable, it can be a real pain.

One way to improve your internet speed and reliability is to upgrade to a DOCSIS 3.1 cable modem. DOCSIS 3.1 is the latest and greatest technology available for cable modems, and it offers a host of benefits over the older DOCSIS 3.0 standard. Read our article about DOCSIS 3.1 technology vs DOCSIS 3.0 here.


Here are just a few reasons why you should upgrade to a DOCSIS 3.1 cable modem:

  3. Improved security – DOCSIS 3.1 includes enhanced security features that protect your data and privacy better than ever before.
  4. Better performance – In addition to being faster and more reliable, a certified DOCSIS 3.1 cable modem also offers better Internet performance overall. That means you can do more online without experiencing slowdown or other issues.
