Motorola DOCSIS 3.0 Modems Now Available at Retail

motorola-docsis-3-modem-retail-frys-electronics

It always stinks when another site beats you to the punch with company news, but sometimes that’s the way it is. As Karl Bode  over at Broadband Reports posted yesterday, Motorola DOCSIS 3.0  modems are now available from Fry’s Electronics. This is the first time DOCSIS 3.0 modems have been available at retail.

If you’ve got DOCSIS 3.0 service in your area (and more and more folks do), you can now buy your own modem as an alternative to leasing one from your cable provider. Many folks are comfortable with the lease model, but – as evidenced in the years Motorola has been selling modems at retail – there are a substantial number of consumers who like the option of owning their own modems and striking the monthly lease fee off their cable bills.

The Motorola DOCSIS 3.0 modems support speeds up to 160 Mbps. Motorola DOCSIS modems are deployed by more cable operators than any other DOCSIS modems around the world. Stay tuned for news of more retail availability…
