Can I purchase my own modem from a retailer instead of renting one from SECV?

It is recommended to rent a modem from SECV for the best possible Internet experience and support; however, you may purchase a modem from a third-party retailer.  A DOCSIS 3.1 modem with a minimum of 24 X 8 channel bonding is recommended for optimal performance.  Customers who purchase their own modem are responsible for troubleshooting modem-related issues using the manufacturer’s user manual.  Some third-party retailer modems may not be capable of getting upgraded speeds.  Our technical service representatives fully support only modems rented directly from SECV.  Customers who subscribe to the 600M, 1 Gig, or 2 Gig tier receive a modem rental at no additional charge.

If you have any questions, please call us at 877.955.SECV or chat us live prior to purchasing a modem.
