Purchase modem and router equipment from outside source.

Would you get the combo system or the modem router seperate.??

 

Do you get a better signal and service with your own system and if so which one do you recommend.

 

Not needed for work and would like to keep it around $200.

 

Thank you so much

Separate components are generally the better choice. For the modem, first, which speed tier are you subscribed to ?

 

Here is an excellent site for researching routers !;

I am not even sure what tier I am on. Supposedly, I am on the Blast Internet with the Combo modem router. Speed test from Xfinity say its good. As you can tell I am not tech savy about this stuff. Thanks for your help.
