Modem for xFinity

Post by citizenskippy » Wed Apr 03, 2019 4:42 pm

A friend is redoing his xFinity contract and wanted to know if he should get a different modem or keep using his rented equipment. His new contract will be 150Mbps.

Any suggestions?

To me it makes no sense to pay for the rental of a modem now that it is $10+ per month. Once the price went up to double digits I started looking and purchased my own.

I use this one and couldn't be happier with it:

ARRIS SURFboard (32x8) DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem, 1.4 Gbps Max Speed.
Certified for Comcast Xfinity, Spectrum, Cox, Cablevision & more (SB6190 White)

It has now paid for it self and then some.
Have not had any issues with it since day one.

I have the same modem that I bought from Amazon Warehouse deals for $75 bucks. (Used - Very Good)

Condition: Used - Very Good - Item is in original packaging, but packaging has damage. Small (less than 1/4" x 1/4") cosmetic imperfection on front of item. Small (less than 1/4" x 1/4") cosmetic imperfection on top of item. Small scratches on sides of item (up to 1/2 in.). Small scratches on back of item (up to 1/2 in.).


Right now you can get it for $46.80 with Prime shipping

+ $0.00 estimated tax
Used - Acceptable
Cosmetic imperfection(s) bigger than 1" on top, front or sides of item. Cosmetic imperfection(s) bigger than 1" on bottom or back of item. Accessories may have cosmetic damage. Item will come in original packaging. Packaging will be damaged.



Upon receiving it, everything was included and there was no damage on the modem cosmetic or otherwise.
