The Netgear CM700 32×8 Cable Modem follows the DOCSIS 3.0 standard to a T. This means that it works with almost every ISP on the market. If you’re using a small local internet provider, it’s pretty safe to say that it will be compatible. Some of the larger ones require modems to be certified before they’re allowed on the service. Certification is a long and expensive process, so it hasn’t always been easy for us to find modems that offer good compatibility. Fortunately, Netgear has a relationship with many ISPs. This means that the CM700 is certified to work on XFINITY from Comcast, Time Warner Cable, Charter, Bright House Networks and more.
There is, however, one special device it’s compatible with. This is the Nighthawk X10 AD7200. If you’ve read our review, you know that it’s the fastest router currently on the market. We can’t think of anything better to pair it with than the fastest cable modem. What’s unique about this relationship is that both devices share the same powerful QoS service. QoS stands for quality of service, and helps to prevent common network issues. The Nighthawk modem can keep careful tabs on all of the users on your network, and the CM700 is capable of making sure that all of your important data is delivered in an effective manner. Together, the duo make for one serious piece of networking hardware.
