Xfinity cable/internet question

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Where can I get a modem for Comcast/Xfinity so that I can avoid the $7 monthly rental fee? How much does a modem effect download speed?

You can either:

1. Go to your local office. They should have a list that they recommend.

2. Or, lookup your local Comcast area in the Local HDTV Forum here at avsforum.com and find out what people are using in your area. Usually get the best recommendations from people near you.

Agreed. They are an affiliate of sorts as well. Im a fan of the Motorolas. Avoid any 2nd hand ones off of EBAY if you can. Ive heard some horror stories.

Just ensure they are D3 capable to get a bit of future proof going. Although Future Proof in cable doesnt really exist these days I guess.

Below are D3 listed devices. The top two are the most common ones in the field now.
