October 30, 2005I just wanted to pass this along to anyone that may be using an old(er) cable modem.
I was using a modem from Comcast that was approaching 4 years old. It finally died the other day, and I bought a new Motorola Surfboard modem at Best Buy (around $80).
My bandwidth speed had been averaging between 3.2mbps and 4.5mbps with the old modem.
With my new modem, I now have speeds between 6.4 and 9.0 consistently, using several different bandwidth test sites.
The difference is absolutely amazing!
I don't know if this is an isolated case, but I'm sure happy with the result.
