Best Splitters for MoCA???

Splitters come in different GHz versions. What splitter is the best configuration for the Tivo and MoCA networks? I've added a Mini and had to crawl in the attic and bypass an amp and add splittersn to get it to work. The splitters are old and I need to get a 3 way anyway. So I am asking for suggestions from knowledgeable people. I think the MoCa works within certain frequencies so I think performance may be affected with the selection of splitter. I need a 2 way ans a 3 way splitter. I would greatly appreciate any educated suggestions?

Thanks!

edit: I did search for answers here on this forum. The threads that allude to it have different suggestions. I'd like clarification on the matter.

Basically anything 1GHz and above is fine. Sometimes lower frequencies work, but 1+ GHz is the safe floor.

MoCA uses frequencies less than 1.7Ghz at this time. More information can be found here at the MoCA Alliance. So ideal splitters would accommodate frequencies at least that high.

The higher frequency the splitter is rated for the better. If you can find one rated for higher frequencies then get that.

Here are splitters I am using that work well for me:

But if you can't find a high-frequency splitter, a 1Ghz splitter will probably work just fine with MoCA. The truth is that even if a splitter isn't actually rated to pass through the higher frequencies, they often will anyway. From what I've heard, MoCA is actually designed to "power through" splitters.

Best Splitters for MoCA

Strange as it seems the three way splitter supplied by Comcast works fine for me for MoCA. The internet signal travels back from the router through the adapter back through one splitter leg and out another splitter leg to the Roamio pro. I get Tivo to PC transfer rates as high as 80Mbps. I get Netflix downloads at 20-25 Mbps.
