Hello Everyone


I was wondering if anyone here in Los Angeles happens to have a Arris / Motorola  SB8200  on Spectrum and if so, what speeds are you getting? 


Do you have teh 300/20 speeds? do you have teh 400/20 speeds?

    By all accounts that I've seen, the SB8200 is working just fine on legacy TWC Spectum systems for all tiers other than the gig tier.
