What exactly is Comcast Internet Voice gear?
Xfinity Voice, often known as VoIP, is our digital phone service (Voice over Internet Protocol). It requires an Internet connection and takes your phone service online to provide you with exceptional call clarity and innovative features. You can either rent an Xfinity Gateway or buy a suitable modem and router.
What is the cost of renting a Comcast modem?
You’ll need a suitable modem and router to utilize Xfinity internet. A modem and a router may appear to be the same thing, but they are not. A modem is a device that links your home to your service provider, which in this case is Xfinity. A router connects to your modem to create a Wi-Fi network in your house via which your computers and other connected devices can access the internet. You can buy modems and routers separately or use a device that combines the two.
You have two alternatives when joining up for Xfinity service: rent a modem and router for $14 per month or buy your own. While knowing that the Xfinity-provided gadget is compatible may give you peace of mind, keep in mind that the rental will cost you around $168 per year. You can buy appropriate equipment to use with Xfinity for approximately that amount (often less) and save hundreds of dollars in rental costs over the next few years.
