    Buying Modems. DOCSIS 3.1 ETC

    Should people wait for Docsis 3.1 when purchasing a new modem?
    First time purchasing a Modem but makes a lot more sense to me then renting one from my ISP company.
    Are their good sources of news and hardware reviews on networking other then PCPER?
    Do they benchmark modems like Allyn does to SSD?
    Thank you community.

    Your current modem will be backwards compatible when DOCSIS 3.1 comes out so there is no hurry. Personally I usually wait for reviews or at least a few months until firmware upgrades have come out, but that is up to you. The Motorola Surfboards have consistently ranked high and I have no doubts that when 3.1 comes out Motorola will be at or near the top again.
