Messaging will continue until your modem is replaced or until outdated modems are removed from our network. To avoid interruption in your internet service you must upgrade your modem.

Final notice

The first week we begin notification 3 messages will be displayed, with each subsequent message taking more screen space and has different titles:

  • You need to replace your Internet modem!

The messages will link you to a website to order your new modem. You will need your 16 digit account number located in the upper left hand side of your billing statement and your service address zip code to begin the modem exchange process.

A new modem will be delivered to your door with a letter and instructions:

If we are unable to reach you with a browser message we will automatically ship you a new modem with a letter and instructions for changing out your existing modem. If you do not replace your modem you may lose your internet service until this is completed.

Charter’s Modem Replacement Website

If you receive a message from us regarding replacing your modem you can request a replacement modem through our online modem replacement website. Click here to access that website.

Charter Issued Modems

If you currently use a modem from us you will be offered a replacement modem at no additional charge. The exchange is necessary as outdated equipment is unable to support our network updates. Until outdated equipment is replaced, you could experience intermittent internet connectivity issues, may be unable to experience optimal speeds, or have loss of service.

Return of the Existing Modem

Upon receiving your modem replacement, you should discard the old modem and its power cord and use the new equipment received from us. You may dispose of the old modem through a local recycling facility. Use this link to find a recycling location. www.epa.gov/waste/conserve/materials/ecycling/donate.htm
