Best Cable Modems of 2019

If you don’t consider yourself tech-savvy, networking hardware might be a bit intimidating—but cable modems are actually relatively straightforward because they only connect to one device: the Wi-Fi router, which routes your signal to your various devices, including laptops, tablets, and smartphones. To help you pick the perfect cable modem for you, we’ve compiled a list of the best available models. We also sent a few home with our thorough testers, who navigated the setup process and measured speeds.

The Motorola MG7700 pairs a 24×8 DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem with an AC1900 Dual Band Wi-Fi Gigabit Router to deliver high-performance, high-speed Wi-Fi and a reliable connection perfect for your home or office. Calling the speeds “blazing fast,” our tester reported, “Everything from surfing the web to streaming video was solid within an approximate 2,000-square-foot radius.” The integrated product, which eliminates modem rental fees, allows for 24 data channels to carry data from the internet, while eight channels can carry data to it. With four 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet ports, it can also provide internet connection for your wired products, whether they are computers, gaming consoles, or HDTVs. However, the combo unit also means you’ll need to plug it into your ISP’s coaxial cable, which can limit where you can place it in your home since coax cables are often installed by your provider in less-than-ideal locations.
