* Actual speeds will vary, and are often less than the maximum possible. Data transmission speed is approximate and depends on the configuration and capacity of your network, as well as the amount of traffic on the network.
** Actual data throughput will be less due to physical layer overhead (error correction coding, burst preamble, and guard interval). Certain features may not be activated by your service provider, and/or their network settings may limit the feature’s functionality. Additionally, certain features may require a subscription. Contact your service provider for details. All features, functionality, and other product specifications are subject to change without notice or obligation. DOCSIS 3.0 modem capabilities are dependant on the services available through the CMTS. Please verify with your CMTS vendor their specific DOCSIS 3.0 implementation roadmap.
