New Netgear CM500V Modem with Telephone coming!

I've been looking for a Xfinity replacement modem with Telephone and no wifi so I can get away from paying Xfinity $10 a month for renting one. Came across this Netgear one yesterday, $129 at Amazon, they are very popular and they are out of stock everywhere, I think they have only been out for a few months by the reviews I've been reading. Its good to 300 down and Supports IPv6, plus DOCSIS 3.0.

Re: New Netgear CM500V Modem with Telephone coming!

I have never rented a MODEM. I was scammed paying rent a few times over the years but got back pay. I don't have any land line phones any longer but that looks like a good one. Let us know how it runs.

That is what they want you to think. 3 things are cheaper than 2 things. How can that be? Well I'll tell you. They now have 3 ways to raise your billing down the road. Plus they think they have you in deeper. If you have more services it will be harder to leave later. I have a theory that your cost automatically goes up and that the average customer will pay pretty high until it hurts enough to change.

They just installed fiber in the neighborhood and when Google Fiber gets offered I am playing it against Comcast/Xfinity. My bill has went from $72 to $134 in the last two years and all I got was free higher download speeds. Up to 95MB DL now.

Re: New Netgear CM500V Modem with Telephone coming!

Sandog don't you think I can shop by now? I'm just telling you here in Ca its the same price for the triple play as just having internet and TV...I'll post the prices tomorrow so you will believe me! Cheese guy after all the time I've been here getting good deals ($440 for the 7820X for example), you think I can't figure out a deal with Comcast. I get a new deal ever 2 years going through the loyalty department because I've been with them for years. By the way I'm getting 150 down here now.

Re: New Netgear CM500V Modem with Telephone coming!

I was trying to get you to think. When I posed the question "How can 3 things be cheaper than 2?" I wasn't doubting that they were. I was implying the only reason 3 is cheaper than 2 is because there is a hook and believe me there is. You don't walk into Kroger and buy 2 pies for 7$ or 3 pies for 5$. It don't work that way.

Re: New Netgear CM500V Modem with Telephone coming!

I wish you would think too, I'm paying less for the triple play than you are for the double play...facts are facts live with it!

Re: New Netgear CM500V Modem with Telephone coming!

I was thinking and I explained it to you. I was just trying to make conversation. The thing that stuck out was when you blurted out 3 is cheaper than 2. I was just making a comment. Not doubting you. You get too offended all the time with me. Like I said before, for some reason you get upset with the things I say. Funny you get upset over the one person who post in this place. Chill out and you live with it.

Yep, much different here in CA. The "clueless" let them get away with it!

Re: New Netgear CM500V Modem with Telephone coming!

I am paying $196 total including taxes and fees per month for:

TV, one HD DVR Box, one Std DVR box, every channel except Playboy and Internationals

Internet, 100/100

Land Line with unlimited domestic calls.

The Quantum Modem has no monthly charge, but it's baked in somewhere.

FV, can I do better for what I have?

BTW, also have Roku with Netflix and Amazon Prime.

Right now with Comcast, they have a Quad Play with 2 year deal, $159 a month, Internet (250 down can't remember the up), TV with HD and I think Dvr 250 channels, phone, and whole home security plus what ever boxes you need and taxes! I'll look for that plan!
