Fido modem and Rogers cable tv

Hi,

 

As a Rogers cable TV customer, I am considering getting Fido home internet.  When I do the installation, will Fido's start up kit include a splitter and the necessary co-axial cables so that I can connect the cable TV converter box to the same cable outlet in the room?  Or do I need to buy the splitter elsewhere?

 

Also, if the internet modem and cable TV is hooked up to the same outlet, would the quality of the internet suffer?  

 

Thanks in advance for your help.

Here's a list of what's included with the modem: 

 

Fido Wi-Fi modem (Hitron CGN3AMF Gateway)
Power adapter (12VDC / 2.5A)
RJ45 ethernet cable (CAT 5e)
Quick Start guide
6-foot coaxial cable
Splitter

 

The connection can be done by yourself or by a technician depending on where you're located. Let us know if you need help checking that out. Smiley

Hi

You will need to get a splitter. It is possible you can get interference from using a splitter.

You will only know once you hook it up. From my personal experience I never had issues with splitters. Actually the tech had to put a splitter on my modem from Rogers because the signal was too strong.
