Good deal for new, tempted to get this, but I've seen the future plans for around here and they're intending to "upgrade" our area to 60/5...100, nevermind even 300, doesn't look like it's on the radar for my area. Frown

Also noticed in the PDF that this doesn't support IPv6, that could be an issue for some. Looks like the 6190 doesn't have that hangup.

Tell TW that. According to the PDF the OP posted, it has an asterisk next to it that IPv6 is not supported.

Yep. Apparently twc has a problem with ipv6 on this particular model.
They say they are working on a fix, but no timeline.

Knowing them, it's probably very low priority. Fixing things doesn't make them money.

I have this modem with TWC in SoCal. My connection is 200/20, but speedtest results with varying websites typically cap out at 160mbps. Not sure if it's the modem or TWC limitations in SoCal. Anyway, I've been really satisfied with the modem, except for the blinding blue LED lights. I had to take the damn thing apart and cover up the lights with electrical tape.

Most of the Motorola modems will assuming they're rated higher than your service speed (which most are these days).

I have an SB6141 and a 50/5 connection through Brighthouse/Spectrum/Charter (whoever they are now), and I regularly get ~55/6-7 Mbit.

That said, for most people internet "speed" (or responsiveness/quickness) is more a product of lower latency (which is a product of the ISPs performance and the user's modem/router/wireless network and devices) given adequate bandwidth, as most aren't bandwidth limited, even with relatively "slow" connections.

* Streaming 4K video only requires around 25Mbit, which beyond hardcore downloading is about the most bandwidth consuming demand a typical internet user would ask of their internet connection. Internet browsing, online gaming, and connection reliability are all more heavily affected by low latency than bandwidth.

ISPs typically try and sell customers more expensive packages throwing huge bandwidth numbers at them, but again, most won't fully take advantage of all the available bandwidth even in a slow to mid tier connection, yet along some of the insane packages.

Sorry for the rant, haha. Just want to remind users to not be lured in to spending money they don't need to with big bandwidth numbers (unless they need it for some reason), and to test their connection every so often (especially if noticing issues)...pay close attention to latency and packet loss. If either is too high (which is somewhat subjective but you can look up acceptable values) call your ISP even if bandwidth is adequate. It MAY be on their end, or it may be a problem with a user's home network hardware/configuration that your ISP can help you nail down : )

* You can do a rough test of your connection stats by going to www.speedtest.net and running their online test folks. Actual diagnostics goes deeper but it's a good starting point.

Solid price on a solid modem though. Thanks for sharing OP!
