Modem list updated July 2017. Prices updated every hour.
Charter has now bought Time Warner and Bright House TV and internet businesses and is beginning the process of rebranding it Spectrum. You can still buy your own modems. (If you’re not in a former Time Warner/Bright House area and have Spectrum internet, go here to find modems: Charter Approved Modems .)
Below are all the modems on the Time Warner/Spectrum Approved Modem List and that can be bought at Amazon, Walmart or Best Buy. We’ve gone through all of them to find the ones that can be purchased at major retailers. (See Bright House Approved Modem List – Same as Time Warner )
If you’re paying $10 a month to rent a modem from Time Warner or Bright House, that’s $120 a year or $600 over 5 years. You can buy a new one that will pay for itself in less than one year.
Easy to install. Just call your internet company and give them the Cable Modem ID (MAC address) and drop off your old leased modem with them. (Instructions for finding your MAC Address)
Note: If you have Time Warner phone service, you can buy one of these modems for internet service. You then keep your old Time Warner modem for phone service, and Time Warner will not charge you for rental fees. Here’s a helpful link on Time Warner’s site: Instructions for connecting 2 modems (Scroll down to “Activate a purchased modem – Internet & TWC Phone Customer” and then click on “Set up and activate your modem”.) Basically you just need a splitter to run one cable to your phone modem and one to your new internet modem.
DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modems
Time Warner, Bright House, Road Runner or Spectrum customers who subscribe to Turbo, Extreme or Ultimate Internet Service or others who want to upgrade to faster services in the future, buy any of these DOCSIS 3.0 modems (Ultimate 300 subscribers should buy the ARRIS / Motorola SB6183. SB6190 or the Netgear C6300 ). We highly recommend customers of all speed plans buy a DOCSIS 3.0 modem in order to future-proof yourself as DOCSIS 2.0 modems are being phased out. :
All of these modems are high quality and have pretty much the same features, except of course those with routers built in. So don’t worry too much about deciding which one to buy. Price should be a main factor in your buying decision. Buy one now and start saving those rental fees!
