Question about a voice modem

I have recently signed up for Xfinity triple play (with phone service and 400 Mbps speed) ) and I would like to get my own modem, preferably with a separate router (already have a Netgear R7000 router).  I have come to realize that a modem with voice capability makes the available choices extremely limited and the gateways with voice are very expensive.  If possible, I would like to get something that meets Docsis 3.1 standard so that it is future proof.  I would like to know what are my choices other than renting from Comcast.  Is there a way the voice can be separated so that I can buy a modem that only handles the internet?  Thanks in advance.

Re: Question about a voice modem

Thank you for the link to the video. It is very informative.  So it seems like I don't have that many choices with a voice modem.  Perhaps I will just rent for now.  Thanks.
