NewWave Cable Modems

The following is a list of cable modems that are approved for use with NewWave Communications. NewWave strongly recommends its customers to select a DOCSIS 3.0 modem that is capable of at least 8 download channels. However, depending on your internet speed you may need to have more channels than that. Yes, you can purchase a new modem for use with NewWave. NewWave does recommend (and we concur) that you purchase a new modem from a reputable source like Amazon with DOCSIS 3.0 technology. Used modems bought from third-parties may not work properly on NewWave’s network even if listed below.

We elect the ARRIS SURFboard SBG10 as the best WiFi cable modem for NewWave. For one it is made by the top manufacturer of cable modems. It has a built-in AC1600 Dual Band wireless router. With a price tag of around $120, you can’t get any better than the SBG10. Other comparable modems are much more. Even a separate router and cable modem would end up costing more. Other product highlights are as follows…

  • 2 wired ports for direct wire and faster connections to TV’s and game consoles or other high data users.
  • 16 download channels make downloading games, shows and movies that much faster.
  • Supports iPv4 and iPv6 protocols
  • Approved for many other providers like Cable One for the switch over from NewWave to Cable One
