Hi..

 

I know you can buy your own data modem and not pay the monthly rental fees, but can you buy your own voice/data modem for use with Digital Voice and Internet at someplace other than Best Buy?

 

If so, is there an approved list?

 

Thanks

A

Best Buy's in certain markets with Comcast Connection centers are the only place  to purchase a eMTA.  At the time of purchast the Comcast rep will setup the tech visit to install the eMTA and at that time the tech will take back the rental.  The hardware is a Arris TM722G.

 

The official post in the stickies is at this LINK

 

No other choices are available right now, including purchasing directly from Comcast.

I was told by a Comcast Tech (telephone support) that in my area (Seattle, WA), I can buy an approved modem and NOT be required to purchase a tech visit (I can call Comcast and get it provisioned, registered, etc).

 

I currently have the Triple Play (with telephone).  I want to discontinue my modem rental and purchase a Docsis 3.0 with EMTA (telephony).  What are my modem options?  And do I have to purchase from BestBuy?

 

Thanks
