Motorola MG8702 DOCSIS 3.1 WiFi Cable Modem


The latest release from Motorola in the line of cable modem router combos is the Motorola MG8702. As with most other new releases, the MG8702 is a DOCSIS 3.1 modem. It also features a built-in AC3200 WiFi Router. With that said, it will not feature the newest WiFi 6 (802.11AX) standard. Don’t get me wrong, wireless AC is still pretty sufficient, I’m just unsure why they built it that way. It will, however, handle download speeds up to 6 Gbps.
