Modem for Comcast Voice

Modem for Comcast Voice

I have the Comcast triple play package and am considering buying a third-party modem to help reduce overall cost of the package by eliminating the $10 rental fee. In general, the info I'm finding on modems doesn't clearly state if they also support voice service or just data/cable. Specifically, will the Arris Surfboard SB-6183 support voice, cable, and Internet, or do I need to consider other options?  Thanks!
