What is the difference between 8x4 and 16x4. I currently have the DPQ3212 which is 8x4.
It appears you didn't like my reply...perhaps too oversimplified.
8 × 4 would be suitable for 150 Mbps16 × 4 for 300 Mbps32 × 8 for 1 Gbps
These aren't written in stone but an idea of modem to data plan.
thank you! That really helps. looks like I should take the suggested upgrade.
if your using cox for phone your stuck with what they require you to use and when they say upgrade you upgrade
I agree if the suggested upgrade will be a DOCSIS-eMTA because it'll still be a free loan. However, if Cox suggested upgrading to a DOCSIS-eMTA-Panoramic rental, I'd be leery of their "suggestion."
Yea watch out for Cox to push their Panoramic junk on you. If you have your own router you don't need it.
