Correct Triple Play Modem?

Correct Triple Play Modem?

I am getting ready to upgrade to triple play service (phone, internet, TV) and want to buy my own modem and router.  I understand that my current modem (Motorola SURFboard Model: SB6120) which is a DOCSIS 3.0 device will not be adequate for the job.  I also have a LINKSYS WRT600N Dual-Band Wireless-N router.  I have been told that an Arris TM722g EMTA modem will do the job.  Can anyone confirm this and will my router work with this modem or do I need to upgrade my router as well.  My Internet package will be at the "Blast" level which I'm told is 50 megabyte download and 10 megabyte upload capability.  Thanks for any help that you can provide.

Yes. The 722G will work but there is an even newer and better model, the 822G, but the first thing you should do is to call in or go to your local CC service center (the better choice) and inquire / confirm as to whether or not customer owned eMTA's are allowed to be used on the local system. Some local franchises still do not allow it and require you to rent one from CC.

 

That router is fine.

Thanks so much for your help!  I'll be sure to check with my local CC service center before making a purchase.
