I personally don't like the combined Modem/Router/WiFi devices, the technology for the modem evolves on different timelines than the router/WiFi. I prefer separate and upgrade each independently.

What speed service do you currently have and do you have plans to get higher speeds in the future?

There are lots of choices but I've been using the Arris SB-6183 stand alone modem for over a year now, it's a decent modem that can handle over 600 mb/s if I ever get service that fast, I'm currently on 75/5 mb/s service and it actually gets closer to 90/6. Someone told me that Arris modems get about a 20% speed boost on Comcast. Best Buy has it for around $60 at the moment.

I'm on a 100 plan I believe. I might split the modem and router. Thanks for the tip on the Arris.

I've mentioned it before, but in Scumcast's database, my house has 2 addresses because the former owner rented out downstairs. Anyway, when the intro deal expires, we sign up at the other address. My partner and I aren't married, so 2 last names, and 2 addresses. We just bounce back and forth. It would be even easier if I own the hardware. The switch could be done over the phone or online.

I agree, never been a fan of putting both devices in a single unit.
