Cable Modem Buying Tips and FAQ's

All Suddenlink Internet Service users: Effective September 1, 2015 all customers must buy a modem with at least 8 channels downstream, these are listed below. Customers with 101-500 Mbps service, should buy one with 16 channels downstream. Those with greater than 500 Mbps service, should buy one with 32 channels.

Do not add any 3.1 docsis modems to Suddenlink’s compatible list as THEY DO NOT CURRENTLY SUPPORT DOCSIS 3.1. Their website contains incorrect info and this has already been verified by Suddenlink tech support and their official twitter account

Are these the ONLY compatible modems for Suddenlink? Or does the modem just have to meet certain specifications?
