Suddenlink Upgrade

Postby TinyJWRinLC » Sat Jun 13, 2015 2:24 am

Suddenlink has recently been advertising there faster internet. If you are a Suddenlink customer, you need to upgrade your modem to a DOCSIS 3.0 or higher. For a list of compatible modem, click here.

Today, I upgraded to a Motorola Surfboard SB6141 Modem.

My internet speed with my old modem:

My internet speed with the new modem:

Setup was quick and easy. I connected the cable to my new modem, plugged in my router and called tech support. She collected the modem's serial number and MAC address, had me power up and open a web browser. I was forwarded to a Suddenlink sign in page where I had to verify my account. Then she had me reboot my computer, load the browser and made sure I had internet connectivity. Total time was about twenty minutes.

If you're a Suddenlink customer and haven't upgraded you modem. I recommend you do so. The speed boost was dramatic. Now I'm saving my money for a new router.

Not only do I not know what's going on, I wouldn't know what to do about it if I did.
