Owned modem will not work with xFi app?

New Poster

Owned modem will not work with xFi app?

I have been an internet customer for 20 years, and I actually own my modem which is a perfectly good Motorola Arris Surfboard modem I paid a lot of money for at Best Buy. In other words, I don't need a new modem. But because I don't rent one from Xfinity for $10/mo I can't use the Xfi app? Ridiculous. I already pay over $160 per month for internet and cable...I'm not going to pay for a new modem that I dont' need. Very irritating.

Guess you didn't read the xFi requirements:

What about the Xfinity "approved" equipment list? Can you use xFi with those?
