I might end up waiting for 10Gb ports to come 'standard' for this. Of course, it all depends on other things. like what my service speed is. Right now I'm fighting motorola due to their crap modem (MB86111) rebooting every 1-4 days (for well over a month). Swapped to a netgear CM1200 (from a friend) a week ago. Not a single reboot (after the normal/initial ones you get when setting one up). Moto support claimed it was the ISP. Nope, 100% green state from the pole to the modem. Zero other issues with the service line from the pole upstream too. The one sitting here is the replacement for the one I bought. I had to pay return ship on the first one (which is BS since it was under warranty). Which means I'm out more than the unit price (total so far is about $185).Reading about "Multi-Gig" WAN ports... Not really an IEEE standard and still associated with 10Gb physical ports. Just saying, seems a bit proprietary IMO. So lookout!
Bottom line, I won't recommend anyone get a moto modem now, or anytime in the future. Especially since if it develops issues (high chance) you're going to be spending even MORE in the hope you get a 'good' replacement at some point.
