Loading... Be Patient!

After paying out far too many dollars to Cox Communications for Internet Access, yet still being plagued by slow download speeds and tortuous upload cycles, I confronted a customer advocate at Cox for some assistance. She helped me quite a bit, including making real time adjustments to my various equipment and their settings... She also convinced me to ditch the $9.99 a month Cox supplied modem and get an upgraded cable modem at my local Walmart. I went online and found a Walmart located near me that had the Arris SURFboard Cable Modem in stock that my quick research made me decide upon...

The Arris SURFboard Cable Modem Model SB6190 is a powerhouse that allowed me to FINALLY have actual access to all that bandwidth I have been paying for each month from Cox! Combined with my Netgear Nighthawk AC 1900Smart WiFi Router I have for the first time truly broken through to mega speed Internet bandwidth at home.

I could tell the difference right away as the new cable modem came into service, and oh, by the way, you will need somebody at your ISP to authorize your new cable modem by serial number and MAC address... I bit of a pain in the butt... Yet the results are well worth it.

Check out some of my initial speed test results in the charts below:

Test your Internet speed in under 30 seconds with a test performed by Measurement Lab. This test typically transfers less than 40 MB of data for most users, but may transfer more on fast connections.

For the first time in many years, I am happy with my internet bandwidth and speed in my home office... What do you think? Is it worth spending money and time to get these benefits?
