ARRIS SURFboard SB8200 Black Friday Deals 2020
Docsis 3.1 over docsis 3 first and foremost benchmark my local network I’m running an open speed test running inside of a container running on a vm.
This speed test inside of a docker container so as you can see it’s pretty close to full gigabit speed now I will go ahead and do the internet speed test directly with the isp now just for kicks here I’m going to go ahead and run the speed test using speedtest.Net selecting cox’s servers now next I’m going to go ahead and run the same speed tests but from my server in which you’ll actually see how fast it can run the local speed test directly from itself to itself because in essence it’s almost like 10 gigabit so we’re pretty much limited by disk.
It is running on standard platter disks now on to cox’s speed test again directly from the server and again I’m supposed to get 300 megabits download and 30 megabits up again this speed is horrible now let’s try it again on speedtest.Net once this finishes I’m going to go ahead and run another speed test but select a different server to test it from it is still not all that great here I’m actually getting the full upstream that I pay for so that’s a plus I will say when I’m uploading large videos to youtube I’m only seeing about 22 megabits in my upstream.
My existing aeris sb6183 this is docsis 3.0 and as you can see power levels all look good snr is acceptable there’s not like a bunch of uncorrectable so there’s not really any reason why I shouldn’t be able to receive the speeds that I pay for now pre-covered I was able to hit well over 300 megabits closer to like 330 to 350 and downstream and upstream sometimes between like 35 to 37 but recently I haven’t been able to hit anything near that I’m going to go ahead and call up my isp and swap out the modem with the sb 8200.
Why pick ARRIS SB8200 on Black Friday?
I went ahead and swapped out the modem to the sb 8200 so let’s go ahead and run that speed test again and see how it performs well that’s not good still not getting the full downstream using cox’s speed test tool and upstream is still pitiful as well let’s try speedtest.Net using coxa servers again definitely an improvement I might just have to run a speed test in the wee hours of the morning when nobody else is online and see if I actually get the speeds that I used to get hop back over to my server you’d figure if you’re testing cox’s network.
They would give a higher priority to the traffic and that simply just does not seem to be the case let’s refresh the modem page there we go here’s the new modem see it’s got 32 channels by 8. However you can see that we only are getting four channels upstream wow look at that over 181 million corrected errors it’s not so good but it’s still an improvement over there.
