Modem question??

Recommended Posts

I just moved to TX & have Spectrum 200/10. I’m using my TP Link TC7610 which I know is a great modem.....but.....with the speeds of 200/10, spectrum doesn’t recommend this one. They recommend the 7620. My question is, should I go with a different modem since my 7610 is only an 8x4 channel, to match the higher speeds of 200/10? If I run the test on the Duma & it doesn’t show high spikes, ping or packet loss, shouldn’t it be ok, even though it’s not recommended with these speeds? I may try the freebie modem they gave me just to compare....I know they don’t have a great track record, but since I have it & its the recommended modem, why not? 

What are your thoughts?

No, don't switch. I have the same modem as you which I bought myself and life has never been better. I have spectrum as well with the same speeds, actually I get more for some reason IDK. I live in MN. It's all about having a smooth connection. There is no spikes with this modem as I've check via ping plotter. Don't listen to charter as they give you shit equipment anyways.

Awesome, I agree. I’ve been super happy with this modem!
