NewWave strives to produce a high level of reliability, stability, and security for our High Speed Internet Subscribers. As such, we constantly evaluate cable modems on our network for compatibility and performance. The following is an up to date list of cable modems that have been certified to work on the NewWave Gigabit high speed internet network.
NewWave Gigabit Internet requires customers to use a DOCSIS 3 Cable Modem. These modems incorporate the latest cable technology, have the capability to deliver faster Internet speeds, and have a longer expected lifetime. Existing customers with older modems, using DOCSIS 2 technology, will still be able to utilize some NewWave’s High Internet packages, but will not be able to utilize the faster High Internet speed packages without first replacing their modem. NewWave strongly recommends customers select DOCSIS 3 modems which are capable of at least 32 channel bonding for the best speed performance.
Note: NewWave Phone Service is only supported on Arris cable modems (eMTA) leased from your local NewWave office.
