Have you ever rented a modem from your internet provider?

But, more than that, have you thought of purchasing one? When you own one, you can use data at a much higher speed. Increased speed means greater work productivity.

Today MyTek will give you a complete rundown of the benefits of owning a modem for your business.

Should You Rent Your Modem?

You can consider renting out a cable modem from your Internet Service Providers (ISPs). This process saves both your money and effort due to a built-in router. But, the quality of these routers may not be up to the mark when it comes to both functionality and security.

Alternatively, you can also opt for a third-party router. Since payment happens every month, it is a cost-effective option to consider. The downside is that some cable companies place restrictions on ISPs, due to which ISPs ask you to use their modem. In this case, you may not have the flexibility to change your Internet Service Providers (ISPs).

Are Cable Modems Compatible with Your ISP?

First, check with your ISP to understand the compatibility of the modems you intend to purchase. Most devices should work well with a third-party modem. Also, ensure that the connection speed of the modem is compatible with the router that you have.

Is a Modem-Router Combo a Good Idea?

A modem-router combo for your business is not a good idea. In this case, if either fails, the entire device can malfunction, thereby stalling your work. Also, these devices are not reliable when it comes to the overall security of your organization. Hence, ensure that you invest in a high-grade, secure router. Plus, change your default settings once you have set up the router in your organization.
