Zyxel C3000Z Modem Speeds
The Zyxel C3000Z modem supports wired download internet speeds of up to 200Mbps, and upload up to 100Mbps. In addition to wired speeds, this model features an integrated Dual-Band WiFi router that supports combined speeds up to AC2200 – 1.7Gbps over 5GHz band and 430Mbps over the 2.4GHz band.
In the past, the C3000Z model was provided as a rental device for customers on CenturyLink gigabit plans, however we recommend getting a a different model if you’re on one of those plans. We feel that limiting yourself to just 200Mbps does not make sense while paying for gigabit services.
C3000Z Bonded VDSL2 with Vector
The Zyxel C3000Z supports VDSL2 bonding with vectoring. Vectoring support reduces cross-talk for up to 150% increase in performance and range for operators.
