Suddenlink Internet services only support modems that are DOCSIS 3.0 or greater, and must have the required number of channels to support your chosen download speed. Using a DOCSIS 3.0 or greater modem will enhance the internet experience as older modems can affect download and upload speeds. If you wish to use your own modem, please be sure to purchase one that is DOCSIS 3.0 or greater. Qualified modems can be purchased either from Suddenlink or from local retail and electronic stores. If you prefer, you can also lease a modem from Suddenlink. The chart below can assist in selecting the appropriate modems but should be viewed as suggested examples.
