I am interested in having my own cable modem. I don't want to pay the rental fee anymore. I know they're 99.99$ but within about 1 year or 1.5 years these ipv4 modems will be useless. Is there any plan to offer ipv6 modems by rogers any time?
IPV6 modems are available right now through Rogers. The IPV6 service its self is not implemented, yet, but the modems are available for install to support 25Mbps+ services and to prepare for IPV6.
The modem is refered to as DOSCIS 3; one of the models being offered is "SMC D3GN-RRR Gateway"
The DOCSIS 3.0 specification improves upon its predecessors by increasing the transmission speeds with the use of channel bonding technology. Channel bonding technology is bonding multiple downstream channels together to get more speeds and bonding upstream channels together to get faster up stream as well. The DOCSIS 3.0 specification also introduces support for IPv6 and is also backwards compatible with previous DOCSIS technology.

Come on Jeffrey! While you may be attempting to help the OP, we all know that the SMC modems are garbage. There are a number of threads on these forums as well as other forums discussing the numerous problems people have with these modems. I don't think it is fair to the customer to mention these modems without also informing them of the problems that people are experiencing. The big question is how long do customers have to put up with these modems and when will Rogers consider alternatives to these modems!
