A cable modem is required to use MCTV’s High-Speed Internet service. We believe the modem is an integral part of the service so we provide one free of charge. Many companies charge a monthly fee for cable modem equipment. MCTV does not.
MCTV provides a cable modem at no extra charge to all Internet customers. Providing equipment gives us much better insight into how the network and your service is performing and ensures that no harm comes to the network through use of external modems. We also provide free replacement, service and upgrades for MCTV-provided modems.
You can purchase and use your own modem. If you do, it is important to remember that you will be responsible for the repair, maintenance and replacement of the modem if it fails.
If you use your own modem and experience in-home problems, MCTV will not attempt to repair your modem. Instead, MCTV will provide an MCTV modem until you are able to repair or replace your own modem. You may, of course, choose to continue to use the MCTV-provided modem at no charge. Read more about customer-owned modems and approved modems.
