DOCSIS 3.1 is a CableLabs® standard for high-speed Internet access that defines support for up to 10 Gbps downstream and 1 Gbps upstream. Actual cable operator network speeds will vary, and will be less than the calculated maximum possible speeds. Actual upload and download speeds are affected by several factors including, but not limited to: the capacity of your cable operator's network, the services offered by your cable operator, cable and Internet network traffic, your computer equipment, type and capacity of your Internet servers, number of connections to your Internet servers, and availability of Internet router(s). DOCSIS 3.0 or DOCSIS 3.1 cable Internet service required. Internet capable gaming console required for gaming experience.

While this modem supports the DOCSIS 3.1 specifications and is backward-compatible to DOCSIS 3.0, it does not support the maximum possible DOCSIS 3.1 speeds. The SB8200 has two 1 Gigabit Ethernet ports, each supporting up to 1 Gbps transfer rate per port (2 Gbps total) to your home network, thereby limiting the throughput from the cable operator network. Your total throughput from your cable operator using this modem will not exceed 2 Gbps.
