I have the xfinity triple play plan.
My modem supplied by Xfinity is a single 2.4 band Arris TG862 for which I pay $10/month.
Xfinity provides two wifi signals; one is a secure home and the other is an unsecured guest.
The home wifi is much weaker than the guest.
I want to buy my own modem to save the rental and get better wifi coverage. Dual band?
I am told that only a few boxes will work because I have the phone as part of the package.
Regarding the phone; when I moved here I wanted to keep my MD cell number but also have a FL #. I don’t use a landline but have the Xfinity # forwarded to my cell. I.E I only use the Xfinity # for incoming calls. I assume that the call is switched before it gets to the modem? So, given that, do I still need a modem that supports Xfinity voice?
Also, with my own modem, will I still receive the two signals?
