    Post Is there a difference between cable modems?

    I have cox-internet service from the cable company speeds are less then good 30kbps to 60kbps download. The modem i was supplied with is a Terayon. I used RR service when i was in Austin and the speeds were way faster. I downloaded & installed the pathes. Would a different cable modem make much of a difference? speed test late at night are around 180 to 220 on various speed test sites.

    What is 30 to 60 k download? kbps?
    The modem is an electronic device. As such, it doesn't affect speed.

    As far as I know...the capping is done by the ISP not the modem. Why would a company put out a modem that could only run at slow speeds?

    You guys better be careful on what you are saying. You are not supposed to talk about uncapping here.

    I don't know how to uncap, am never going to uncap, and I still get sh$t from people for saying that the isp is the one who caps. Once people start to post the how to part...it becomes illegal. Until then it is not doing any harm and is not illegal.

    Yes, caps are implemented at the headend and all cable modems are capable of speeds much greater that what current cable systems allow.

    Did you subscribe to Cox Express or Cox Express light?

    Thanks,

    Answering my own question, it must not be the light. You are capped at 128 up and 1024 kilobits down.
