Mrdgl, The Gig connections are installed with their own Gateway, if you are asking about Ultimate service we would recommend The Netgear CG4500BD or Ubee DDW366 for dual band connections for wireless. The full list of supported modems can be found on our site here.

Ultimate Internet and Gigablast are 2 different things. I've checked your equipment and your gateway is showing an unusual amount of power adjustments. If the device's power cord plugs into a surge strip please bypass it by plugging the gateway's power cord directly to an electrical outlet at the wall.
Please log in and run a test at http://bit.ly/CoxSpeedTest so that your results will be logged to your account. If you are not seeing the results you are expecting, please ensure you are using a wired device and run the test again. wireless speeds will typically be slightly lower than wired speeds.
Let me know when that is completed so we can review your results.

Will gigablast also have a data usage limit like all the other plans?
The link (which does not seem to be correct - URLs on non-Windows servers are usually case sensitive so I think you need to use http://cox.com/giglife , not the version with capitalization) doesn't show my anything other than a spash screen - nothing useful about when it will be in my area.
So I googled and found http://www.dailypress.com/business/tidewater/dp-tidewaterbiz-cox-20141029-story.html ... very interesting ... all new homes in all Cox markets will have it starting in 2016.
I was hoping we would get gigabit in my area. I'm looking to move in the next year or so, so I know what one of my requirements is going to be. ;)
How is the digital phone delivered if the customer orders Gigablast? what about sharing the internet with other equipment like tivo and other computers?
What about Tucson? the sales rep told me *within the week* when I asked him when will it be available in Tucson, that was three months ago... he also told me there was no caps with the 99 dollar a month ultimate service, but he was wrong again, there is a 400 gb cap.
Do I need to upgrade my cable modem?
my router was the problem. I purchased a nighthawk triband router from best buy and I am getting full speeds( mine is the premium getting 120 Mbps from speakeasy speed test.
Disappointed in the COX gigablast. After 6+ hours of several installation folks running around my house I find out that my computer that runs XP will not interface with the gigablast system. Solution stated was to go by a new computer. After it was all done they said they should have asked you what operating system I had before we installed it. COX pushed the deal without knowing how it would affect my household. So trying to save money on their deal is going to cost me more. Be cautious of the better offerings. Very Disappointed!
