WoW Cable Modems FAQ
There are a lot of cable modems that work with WOW. Only DOCSIS 3.0 or 3.1 modems are allowed on the WideOpenWest network. We suggest you use a modem with at least 8×4 channel bonding. View a list of modems that work with WOW here.
If you subscribe to speeds of 200 Mbps or lower, the best modem for you would be the ARRIS SBS6141. If you’d like a WiFi cable modem, we suggest the SBG6900AC. Other modems are listed here as well that work with higher WOW service tiers.
Depending on the service speed you select, you can expect to pay anywhere from $29.99 to $79.99 or even higher a month.
