[Cerowrt-devel] DOCSIS 3+ recommendation?

Hi cerowrt-devel,

My cable internet provider (Comcast) has been pestering me (monthly email 
and robocalls) to upgrade my cable modem to something newer. But I _like_ 
my current one (no wifi, battery backup) and it's been very stable and can 
handle the data rates I am paying for. But they are starting to roll out 
faster service plans and I guess it would be good to have that option (and 
eventually they will probably boost the speed of the plan I'm paying for). 

Any recommendations for cable modems that are known to be solid and less 

I (like probably everyone on this list) will have router doing SQM/etc 
connected to the device, so that reduces the damage large buffers in it can 
do, but it would still be good to have something that designed well and to 
reward a vendor that's paying attention.

My personal ideal is a simple device, cable-in gig ethernet out, and does 
not have wifi, usb, do NAT, etc. (that's what cerowrt on the router/AP is 
for). Are there DOCSIS 3.1 devices available yet? Or if those aren't 
available/affordable, maybe an inexpensive but good 3.0?
