Trying to purchase the correct retail router for my system

I have xfinity internet, wifi, tv and phone on my plan and am trying to escape the monthly router charge from Xfinity. I am trying to determine if the Netgear Nighthawk AC 1900 WiFi w/Voice will handle my "speed" needs and is compatible.

If that has an R7000 model number then the answer is no. That is a straight router only. There is no built in cable modem for internet service support and no built in eMTA for phone service support.

Input your "download speed". Check the box for "Voice/Telephone enabled". Check the box for "WiFi enabled" if you want a combo gateway device. Click o "Buy Equipment". See what's available.
