It depends on what speeds you get from isp... And how many channels are available to you. I found a used-like new of the cm500 the other day on Amazon... It's worked great for me on Comcast with the 200mbps tier (I get well above 200mbps, averaging across testing at 220-240mbps).
For me, Comcast doesn't offer anything between 250mbps and 1gbps tier, and as this modem won't handle the 1gbps speeds, this modem provides no real benefit (this or any other modem at this level).

Comcast uses Docsis 3.1 to achieve gigabit using 24 + 1. It looks like this can theoretically achieve a gigabit with 32 channels but Comcast isn't using that method.

Also depends on where you are, Comcast won't allow BYOM (bring your own modem) for the gigabit service like their other lower tiered services. I just reupped my 200mbps service last wee and asked about it.

As other said, modems with Intel Puma 6 will fail prematurely. Best Docsis 3.1 modem right know is the Motorola MB8600, followed by the Arris Surfboard SB8200. Both feature a Broadcom chipset, but the Motorola one comes with 4 LAN ports for port bonding. Theoretical throughput is 2Gbps, and is less expensive.

CM600 is Broadcom based and cheaper. 24x8 channels, but still should be fine for higher tier speed packages.

How do I use a voice line with this? Some reviews mention a splitter, but I've not been able to find a splitter for Ethernet that splits to a phone line.
