Does anyone know when there will be consumer available of Comcast's new generation of DOCSIS 3.1 XB6 modems? Apparently that's needed to enable speeds faster than Blast service.
Solved! Go to Solution.
FWIW, there are a few "Extreme" speed tiers that are faster than the Blast tiers that don't require an XB6 / DOCSIS 3.1 capable device;
XB6 / DOCSIS 3.1 is required for the "Gigabit" speedtier

Is there a particular reason you want the XB6?
Only reason I can see would be if you have Phone and Gig services. Even if you have phone service you can keep your current MTA and then get your own D3.1 modem and a nice router and avoid the 10-12/mo rental fee.
