Introduction

If you currently own a cable modem, you might be able to use that modem with NCF's cable service.

Each network vendor certifies and approves cable modem hardware and firmware versions for use on their network infrastructure. This certification process tests the modem and firmware version on the network to ensure its performance and stability.

On the Rogers network

For cable internet service on the Rogers network, the modems that are eligible for use depend on whether or not you are signing up for service, or are transferring service from another ISP using the Rogers network to NCF.

New Sign-ups

If you own one of the following cable modems, and the firmware version of your modem matches the firmware version for your make and model below, you can use the cable modem with NCF's cable internet service.

Cable Modems Eligible For Sign-ups (on the Rogers network)
Manufacturer Model DOCSIS Support Firmware Version
CBN CD8000 3.1 7.13.198.12

- As of June 1, 2021, only DOCSIS 3.1 cable modems can be used for new activations on the Rogers network.

There are additional cable modem options when transferring service to NCF. This is because any DOCSIS 3.0 cable modems certified by Rogers and currently provisioned on its network can continue to receive service even if transferred to another ISP on the Rogers network.
