This modem gets a special mention because it’s one of the only retail modems to support Xfinity Voice, the telephone service featured in the Triple Play package. That being said, when it comes to the price value of Arris equipment, their SVG2482AC telephony modem is at the bottom of the pack.
The modem options for Comcast users are severely limited by the Triple Play, but this Residential Gateway can help make the deal work on your terms.
This modem is capable of download speeds up to 1 Gbps. It includes an AC-band WiFi router to project your wireless network through your home. There is no modem-only version of this product so if you already have your own router that you’d rather use, you will have to bridge it to the built-in router.
The embedded router performs pretty well, though, which is good considering that the placement of your home phone lines might limit where you can place your modem-router. The SVG2482AC has four ethernet ports, two USB ports for network-attached storage, and it can support two simultaneous voice lines.
Even with the higher price of this unit, you will still be saving money by making the switch from a rented unit, especially if you had to sign a multi-year contract with your ISP.
