Looking to up your Internet connection significantly? CommScope has something that might help. Today, the company announced the availability of the ARRIS SURFboard S33 Cable Modem that can handle a faster-than-Gigabit broadband connection.
Indeed, the new modem comes with a 2.5Gbps and another 1Gbps LAN port. As a result, technically, it can deliver up to 3.5Gbps of combined broadband bandwidth. In reality, though, chances are you’ll get 1 Gbps or a 2.5Gbps connection from it. And those are plenty fast.
The modem supports 32 x 8 DOCSIS 3.1 standard. As a result, it can technically handle up to 4Gbps download and 1Gbps upload speeds on the WAN side. Obviously, the actual speeds depend on your Internet plan.
Physically, the S33 is relatively compact, coming in a slender cylindrical shape that measures 5.1 in × 1.8 in × 4.7 in. It’s slated to be compatible with all popular cable providers in the US, including Comcast Xfinity, Cox, Spectrum, and more.
CommScope says the new modem is easy to set up, which is true for all cable modems and comes with a 2-year warranty. It’s available now at Best Buy with a retail price of around $170.
