Why we buy modem router combo

Depending on the region, each ISP gives you different prices for unique plans. The prices are depends on the speed of the internet, renting of modem/router and additional services such as cable TV and Phone line. By the way, your internet service provider may not allow you to use your own modem if the ISP uses fiber-optics or DSL lines. Check your ISP, what type of internet service they provide.

The rental’s possible price for a modem by most ISP is in the range between $13 to $16 per month. When you are ready to buy, you need know what plan you want to have for your need. The minimum download & upload speeds are about 25 Mbps and 3 Mbps, respectively. The common fast speed tiers are 100 Mbps, 200 Mbps, 250 Mbps, 300 Mbps, 400 Mbps, 500 Mbps, 1000 Mbps, and 2000 Mbps. If your plan is a high-speed internet package, have a fast speed modem to handle the incoming/outgoing speed.



So, how do you choose a modem for your plan? First, the speed of the modem depends on the Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification (DOCSIS), a data transfer technology that provides internet access over a cable modem. Currently, most ISPs require at list a minimum of DOCSIS 3.0 and the latest is DOCSIS 3.1. The difference between the two versions is DOCSIS 3.0 supports speed up to 1000 Mbps (1 Gbps) while the DOCSIS 3.1 supports up to 10,000 Mbps (10 Gbps). If you own a modem that supports a DOCSIS 3.1 you will use it for a long term while the ISP increase the speeds in the future. The following functions show the manufacturer’s download/upload speed and upstream/downstream channels. Verify if your ISP supports the selected modem before purchase.
