Motorola MG7550 vs Netgear Nighthawk C7000 How far you can reach depends a lot on the type of building you're in and how many other wireless signals are nearby. The range in an apartment with concrete walls is much smaller than the range in a house in the suburbs with drywall inside the walls. The results depend a lot on the client you use (notebook, tablet, phone, etc.). Netperian did an independent study to look at how fast and far different AC1900 cable modem gateways could go. Wow, the triple play did a great job for my family, but we (I) needed to be closer to her family. A modem with two phone jacks was given to us by Comcast. But Comcast TV/Movies kept recycling the same shows and movies every month (showing the same movies day after day).
I changed the plan to include both the phone and the internet. There were different kinds of buildings in the test, and speed tests were done in each room. The Motorola MG7550 did a much better job than Arris and a lot better job than Netgear. Since the report has more than 40 pages, you'll see that a few numbers for range don't tell the whole story. In an open field, the MG7550 got an average download speed of 214 Mbps at 1000 feet and 475 Mbps at 100 feet. Under the same conditions, those data rates were much higher than Netgear or Arris. The 250 Mbps and 300 Mbps DOCSIS 3.0 services are the fastest ones that major service providers offer, and the MG7550 can use them. The MG7550 can't handle 32 channels down, but 32 channels won't get you very far anyway. The next big speed boost for cable modems will be made possible by a technology called DOCSIS 3.1. When you combine the cable modem and router, you get a secure connection and save space on your desk by getting rid of all the bulky cables and power adapters. The vertical shape takes up less space on shelves and helps keep things cooler. It also looks great in any home or office. It has a two-year warranty and strong circuits to protect your money from lightning and power surges. There must be cable access to the Internet. It has been approved for use by Comcast Xfinity and Xfinity X1, Cox, Charter Spectrum, Time Warner Cable, Suddenlink, WOW, CableOne, and other cable companies.
You can save up to $156 per year on rental fees for a cable modem.(The savings are for Xfinity and may be different for other cable companies.) Cable modems don't work with Verizon, AT&T, CenturyLink, Frontier, and other providers' fiber optic, DSL, and satellite services. (There is no phone jack on the MG7550.) If you use the Model C7000 instead of renting your cable modem and Wi-Fi router, you can save up to $168 per year. Note: The user guide, on page 102, tells you how to fix problems. Spectrum, Xfinity (up to 800Mbps), Cox (up to 500Mbps), and Verizon all have different speeds (up to 400Mbps). How modems use technology: The design used DOCSIS 3.1 and 328 channel bonding. A built-in high-speed Wi-Fi router with AC1900 Wi-Fi, Power Boost, and DFS lets Wi-Fi devices like smartphones, laptops, tablets, game consoles, HDTVs, Amazon Echo, Google Home, Chromecast, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, and Apple TV connect to the Internet.
