Gateway modem question if want to add voice service.

Currently have Xfinity TV and Internet service with my own modem/WiFi/router, a Netgear C7000. If I want to add the voice service for triple play, can I just add another modem with voice capability (Arris TM822R or Netgear CM500V) in addition to the Netgear 7000 I already have or I have to replace the Netgear 7000 with a complete new modem such as Netgear C7000V?

Either option will work, depending on your needs. 

 

I currently have an ARRIS SB8200 for gigabit internet (which I bought new) and an older ARRIS TM722G for voice (which I bought from Amazon used for $25) and they work really well.

Thanks for the information. I will get an Arris TM822g as a voice only modem and use the existing Netgear C7000 for internet.
