    "Love It...Not bad...This is the perfect modem for anybody was a high-speed ISP provider such as Comcast I am I currently have Comcast and I am able to push almost 350 mix down as well as 30 to almost 35 megs up but dad is currently with my 250 extreme package so with this modem I am almost adding an additional hundred megs just with the modem all alone but I also highly recommend that you also grab a router that supports this high-speed modem...As such, I would highly recommend this modem to any cable subscriber on a plan with download speeds of at least 100 mbps, especially if you are using a modem that bonds less than 16 downstream channels (such as older SURFboard modems)."

    "Good !...Spot on...I bought this modem to eliminate the $10 cable modem fee I paid my cable company it's more reliable and faster than the one the cable gives you, i've had it for a couple months and it's been working perfectly I recommend it for anybody who doesn't want to pay the ridiculous cable modem fee from the cable company or Internet provider....Right now my connection maxes out around 192Mbps with Boost so I'm not hitting the limits of the modem but I plan on having this modem for many years to come so if I eventually am able to upgrade to 250 or 300Mbps it will be able to handle it and not be pushing the limits of its capabilities, even with Boost pushing it over my rated speed."

    "I love...It's ok...This router/modem gives us a DOCSIS 3.0 modem that's fully capable of getting download speed of 100Mbps, but the wireless speeds at a distance of about 20 feet leaves some to be desired....I love that it takes up very little space, but due to not having external antennas, it goes out a lot if being used for wifi access for smartphones, but is fine with being used for laptops and computers if you don't mind a few delays and even though it's a dual- band wireless-n router with built in cable modem, it's difficult to get the secondary band to function and wouldn't recommend it for large homes but it's rather more suitable for apts."

    "A plus...It's ok...This cable modem is a very good choice for people who want to shave cost off their monthly cable bill and the modem's ability to support up to 680 Mbps means that when higher speed cable internet becomes more affordable you can easily opt for the speed bump without the need to purchase a new cable modem....I'm taking this Netgear modem up because the $129 Motorola modem and kept dropping the signal even though I was the top-of-the-line product it just didn't consistently whole signal I was sometimes to be 180 MB sometimes it would be 2mb so I gave up on him and his wrist out for this Netgear so far the Netgear can match the same speeds and it doesn't seem to have the drop off and I'm happy with my modem"
