you can get a free 32:8 ubee modem from them, just ask.

they should be 100% docsis 3.1 complaint during Q1.2019
and will probably free speed bump everyone after that.

No... it depends on whether you're on the new Spectrum pricing plan. I'm still on the old Time Warner plan, and I get about 70 Mbps down (on a good day) with a 16x4 modem. It would have been much less, but my area received the "Maxx" upgrade shortly before Spectrum took over.

nope. a $5/mo lease is only required if you also want charter's new 3x3 ac2650 gig router. considering most routers of this quality start over $100, for tech clueless not concerned about their privacy, it actually pay to use charter's.

it's sad to witness how behind the curve verizon fios is now. while their ont is free, their 4yo ac1900 router for $10/mo is well known to have pathetically weak 5.0 wifi radios. why people continue to let fios intimidate them into renting such outdated toys is sad to witness whenever i agree to help a new cord cutting friend. people on verizon fios should ignore their marketing and read their quarterly shareholder statements. they are on a $10bil cost cutting tear that will ultimately degrade your quality and value of service.

How does this compare to the modem that xfinity gives you? (Minus the wifi). Is docsis 3.1 very important?

What is the practical purpose of buying a modem these days? Don't know about everyone else's ISP's, but I have Spectrum and there is no modem rental fee.

Just to rant. For a while I used my own Netgear CM500 anyway, since it had been doing the job. Then Spectrum's speeds (when running speed tests) started going all over the map. Even though I was paying for 100 Mbps, speed tests were giving me an almost seemingly random number between 20 and 117. So I ordered a rental modem (and ended up getting an Arris SB6183) for the express purpose of them not being able to blame their slow speeds on my customer owned modem. Switching the modems didn't help the random speeds but for whatever reason they went back to a consistent 117 on their own a couple weeks later.

There are many variables that determine Cable internet speed, along with your setup. I don't know your situation but I have had the CM500 for over 3 years and always get consistent speed (over 200 Mbps) on TWC/Spectrum 200, and I live in a condo in a densely populated area. I've never had to reset the modem either. I work from home and my livelihood pretty much depends on a smooth connection. Perhaps it's your router? When I was temporarily using the Sprint AC1750, it capped me at 100 Mbps (I was too lazy to update the Sprint firmware to the OEM firmware).

charter spectrum standard (100-200 down) is not demanding on any 8 channel modem, so i double your choice of modem has any baring on your inconsistent speedtests. your modem choice impacts latency a lot more than speed, so unless you are a twitch gamer, again the modem choice won't matter much.

charter is finishing off it's docsis 3.1 build this quarter*, so not only should your speed stabilize but it may actually increase (for free) depending on your last mile market. if your isp wiring is exposed to the elements as it often is on a tree lined suburban street, it may be a last mile issue with your block or house.

the advantage of getting charter's docsis 3.1 modem is if you speed test wired right off their modem, and still get under 80% of the speed you are paying for, you may be entitled to a premise visit to check out your last mile wiring, and since it's to their modem there would be no charge.

i was a major charter critic in 2016-2017 after they took over twcable and service didn't improve at all, but in 2018 they really got their act together and the network here in NYC and other major urban markets has improved considerably, as are their speeds and equipment offerings. i only advocate for their isp service - i can't speak to their video stuff.

*comcast already finished it's docsis 3.1 rollout and just reported a record number of new isp subscribers this past quarter, so the coax duopoly we all love to hate, is at least getting their isp only offerings right for a change most likely because they finally realize it's the main profit center now that reselling video content has become so competitive.
