Best Cable Modem

What is the best cable modem I can get from spectrum? I have access to the Hitron, Ubee, and Technicolor. Please do tell me why you choose that. Thank you so much! I truly appreciate it.

The reason I'm asking now is because I noticed that I have these random freeze points where the modems lights are solid but no webpage is loading... which is really weird... I had a tech come out and everything and my signals were good...

    The most current modems are the 3.1 modems that are required for gig tier. There are at least three variants of this modem built to exact same specs...Hitron, Technicolor, and Ubee. The Ubee version is the only one of the three that allows access to the user interface to see signal levels and such, if that interests you. 

     

    Note that some areas won't give these modems out unless you are subscribed to gig.

    I had 5 techs out because I was having very inconsistent speeds. It would go from 200 mbps to 1 mbps every few minutes. Thank God that's been fixed. I never had this problem before with no webpage loading at all. I always had an Ubee modem. When I first installed service it was an Ubee and then when I thought it was my equipment I changed it and I got an Ubee again. But this time around the tech changed it and now I have a Hitron.

    I have seen many hitrons, few ubee and few Technicolor modems left.
