Making modems and router specific to certain service providers is not a new idea. But with that being said, NETGEAR’s latest Nighthawk Router is a Modem, a Wireless Router, and works with XFINITY Voice.
It’s full name is the Nighthawk AC1900 WiFi Cable Modem Router for XFINITY Internet and Voice (C7100V). It can get you connected to an optical line, as it’s a mode, get your devices connected to the internet through WiFi, and can handle XFINITY Voice. For customers on a triple or double play with Comcast, you can maximize the speed of your service up to 960Mbps.
This Nighthawk Router can handle WiFi speeds of up to 1.9Gbps, plus you can hardwire four devices thanks to four Gigabit Ethernet ports onboard. This three-in-one device can have two telephone lines with a battery backup capabilities. Plus it will prioritize voice traffic for reliability and clarity.
And you do not need to make a service call to XFINITY to get this router or to set it up. NETGEAR has built-in over the web self-activation for this device. The Nighthawk AC1900 WiFi Cable Modem Router for XFINITY Internet and Voice (C7100V) will land later this year for $299.99.
