A:AnswerYou would have to pay for an internet service (Comcast, Cox, etc.) to get internet. If you are not familiar with any of it, it'll be easier to just get these devices on rent from the service provider for an extra $10-12 per month. Otherwise you need to also buy a wifi router along with this device. Or else buy a wifi router combo device (MOTOROLA MG7540 is most popular) instead of buying this modem and a router separately. But before buying anything, make sure that your internet provider needs these devices (many providers have a different technology which doesn't need any of these devices). Good luck!
A:AnswerShort answer: Yes. I am paying for a 600 mbps download, 20mbps upload plan from my internet provider (Xfinity). According to speedtest.net, my plan and the Motorola MB7621 modem exceeds this easily with speeds in excess of 720 mbps/22 mbps. The speed test just completed as I prepared this reply is 735.24 mbps download, 24.02 mbps upload.
A:AnswerYes, it will work, but be advised that Optimum does not support it. It means that any support you get is based on the good or bad nature of the Optimum technician you get on the line. Official Optimum approved modems are available from their store. They all support their own VoIP telephony solution. I did not want a modem with an additional potential failure point. Once Optimum registers your modem you can no longer access your settings. They have to do it. There are some secondary lists out there of non-VoIP Modems at various times approved by Optimum, however with new ownership and changing policies, I would call and confirm any candidates for a self purchased modem that you are considering. I myself am using the MD7621 with Optimum. I got a technician who researched it, called me back, and registered it with my subscription to their 300 Mbps service. I am happy with the connectivity I have with all of my smart-home devices and the MD7621, but the experience of not renting from them has not been perfect and I still have slow re-connection when the signal is lost once to three times a day. I'm sure they are deliberately shedding connections to increase system-wide bandwidth.
