  1. What 3.1 modems does mediacom support? Why do I need to rent 3.1 modem from you and have you install?
    Upload speeds with mediacom are very slow.

    • Hello Mike,

      First of all, Mediacom does not operate this site. You will need to contact them for support issues (side note, you do not need to rent a modem – buy your own modem to save money). is a site that pulls information on certified modems for ISPs. The point of this website is to save people money on purchasing their own modems instead of renting, which is a big waste of dollars.

      As for the DOCSIS 3.1 modems Mediacom supports, please check the list below. These modems are also indicated in the the list above with a * after the modem model #.

      ARRIS SB8200
      Motorola MB8600
      NETGEAR CM1000
      NETGEAR CM1100

      Thanks for the question, Mike.

  2. I have Mediacom and want to buy my own modem/router with VoIP and WiFi capabilities, are their any available that I can purchase?

  3. I have a Netgear Nighthawk X6
    AC 3200 Tri-Band WiFi Router. Model R8000.
    Will this replace my modem from mediacom and my old router ?
