Question: If I subscribe to Xfi Advantage can I exchange my older Arris gateway to the newest one?

Hi. I'm currently subscribed to Xfi and have an Arris TG1682G gateway, which I rent from Comcast. If I subscribe to Xfi Advantage does that allow me to swap it out for the newer gateway with the smaller footprint?

I swapped out my XB3 for the XB6 as soon as it was available in my service area; xFi Advantage is not a prerequisite.

Hey there, disciple1211! The XB6 is a fantastic modem and I'm happy to hear you're looking to get it. I have it at home and love it. 

You're able to get this modem without getting xFi Advantage depending on your current speeds. I can send one out to you as well to save you a trip to the store! Please feel free to send me a PM with your first and last name to get started.
