The Arris SB6183 Cable Modem - Internet Is Faster Than You Could Imagine

The Arris SB6183 Cable Modem
This Arris SB6183 came highly recommended, now I know why my old modem was throttling my internet speed due to the hardware. The modem was an 8X4 modem, which means it had 8 possible channels to download and 4 possible channels to upload. The SB6183 is a 16X4, which doubles the download channels. Granted, the tests were about 30 minutes apart, but using the SB6183 on SPEEDTEST.NET, I immediately jumped from 40.63mbps download to 76.93mpbs down! That's almost DOUBLE the download speed just by switching to a 16X4 modem!

Thanks to the new modem, youtube videos load almost instantly and Netflix movies load much faster. Heck, I've noticed a decent jump in 'snappiness' of the internet all the way around simply by changing cable modems. If you're paying for faster speeds, check your modem to be sure it's allowing 16X4 access, if not, you're missing out on speed that you're paying for!

I'm EXTREMELY happy with the Arris SB6183 and recommend it to people who currently have an 8X4 modem but are paying for premium speeds. Check availability in your area to be sure that your cable company supplies a 16X4 stream, and if they do, don't hesitate to upgrade. This modem rocks!
