This modem is a solid modem for the price. Docsis 3.0 will be around for a while. Docsis 3.1 is the newest tech. For the average user streaming and downloading this should last 5-10 years easy. The 16x4 refers to docsis carriers. 16 downstream carriers and 4 upstream carriers. Most people do more downloading than uploading. That's why these numbers are not the same. Cable company's push the download speed to be higher than upload for that reason. Anything you buy docsis 3.0 will be worth it. For now as an average user. Stay away from owning 3.1 (my opinion). It's not worth the cost for the technology you probably won't use anytime soon. Price will go down for this. 3.1 is for gigabit customers. Streaming 4K..... hardwired is the way to go. Wireless will do this. But that depends on what wireless router you get. You sorta get what you pay for. Netgear entry level night hawk 70-100$....Great coverage. But hardwired is king for streaming if possible. *** this doesn't do phone service. If phone is bundled into your cable company plan.... this is not the device you need.

The Linksys CM3016 is equipped with an Intel Puma 6 chipset​ - this is the source of many latency/jitter problems and is vulnerable to a DoS attack where anyone can knock your service online. Intel has had over a year and a half to address these issues and so far hasn't been able to.

There is a class action lawsuit involving all Puma 6 modems. See http://www.badmodems.com/ for more info.

The SB6183 that is mentioned in this deal is a Broadcom based modem (the only alternative to Intel Puma 6). The SB6183 is a solid modem with a Broadcom chipset, plenty for a 200/30 service.

You could also step up to a Netgear CM600 if you want 24x8 channels (however, no provider does 8 upstream channels), or a Motorola MB8600 with DOCSIS 3.1 support if you ever plan on getting Gigabit service. There are other 24x8 and DOCSIS 3.1 broadcom based modems as well, but the CM600 and MB8600 have the best deals.

Yes. If phone isn't bundled into your cable plan. This will be perfect

Great, although your question is lacking a lot of substance, if you have a modem already it's probably the same if not better than this already.

Unless you are on DSL!!! Yikes

Really doesn't matter as this won't help you. Also a lot of cable companies now include the modem because they just jacked up the prices and removed the rental fee.

Actually I'm a AT&T uverse user now. Once I pull the trigger on a nice 4k HDR TV, likely from a deal found on Slickdeals, I will probably switch to Comcast. Just tying to figure out how much modem to buy without getting too many channels or too few channels to stream 4k while being able to stream another device or two in HD at the same time.

Get the modem that'll support the max speed your plan provides. You'll want to invest more in a quality router.

I'd like to answer this for you. More than 4 is better. More speed is always a plus. But even if you have 8 or 12....most cable companies don't have that many built into the upstream plan being that download is used more than uploading. 4 seems to be the normal max upstreams for cable systems. There are exceptions and updated cable plants with more. Right now 4 is the max in 90% of cable systems. Your average cable plan prolly offers 10mb uploading speeds. So 1 will cover this.
