US Robotics v.92 modem slow now with Xfinity Voice

We just got Xfinity cable and voice. I work from home and have to use a phone line and dial up connection to log on to my work computer. Now that we got Xfinity Voice, after I log on,it's processes information real slow. Wondering if my US Robotics modem is not compatible with Xfinity voice? Thanks!

Re: US Robotics v.92 modem slow now with Xfinity V

Comcast's phone service works fine for voice calls, but devices like fax machines and dial-up modems won't be able to run at full speed on it. For maximum speed with these you are better off with a POTS line.

 

You should also be aware that Comcast's "Unlimited" phone service is actually limited to 5000 minutes per month, or about 2.7 hours per day. See http://forums.comcast.com/t5/Customer-Service/Phone-being-disconnected-for-exceeding-5000-long-minut...
