replace modem?

I like to be proactive and replace things before they actually fail and future proof.

I currently have my own 3 1/2 year old Arris SB8200 that still works. 

I would have liked to get that Motorolas MB8611, but I see it is unavailable for some reason. 

So, i might settle for the MB8600. 

 

I guess I could wait, but it would be nice to take advantage of the sales now?

How long do thes modems usually last?

That would be a lateral move.

They are typically obsoleted / no longer supported by ISP's before they malfunction / suffer a hardware failure.
