Want a third party modem to replace CGM4140com

Moving to new home and want a third party modem.  None of the models I’m finding online or from Comcast have what I think are the required specs: Docsis 3.1, voice capability, wifi, etc.  Should I settle for 3.0?  Thanks

FWIW, you don't need a DOCSIS 3.1 capable device if you don't have, or plan to upgrade to their gigabit-speed tier. You also don't need a voice service capable device unless you actually have and use their voice service.

Thanks, as you can tell this is new to me.  We don’t need the gig speed tier.  We do have our landline through Comcast but maybe it’s time to say goodbye to all that.
