    "I was paying a monthly fee for Xfinity's top modem, but when I upgraded to the CM3000 I immediately recorded records speeds, the nightly reset/update of my modem from xfinity also stopped occurring, which always seemed to happen in the midst of great productivity or a great gaming moment, I'm thankful those are a thing of the past. ...It works nicely with my Orbi WiFi . I haven’t tried gaming with it yet but otherwise easily handles demand."
