A cable modem like this paired with a good router is just setting yourself up for success.

  • What makes this deal worth considering? - The end of summer saw quite a few cable modem and modem/router bundles go on sale, but the deals dried up over the last couple months. This price is $7 better than a deal we last saw in August.
  • Things to know before you buy! - Netgear has another $10 off coupon on the R6700 router, too, which would pair perfectly with this cable modem.

This Netgear CM500 cable modem is down to $39.99 on Amazon when you clip the on-page coupon. This cable modem mostly sells around $60. It drops down to $55 every now and then, but it's really through these $10 off coupons that you can take advantage of those drops. This sale is one of the best prices we've seen and beats out a drop to $45 we've shared a couple times before.

Cable modems work best when paired with decent routers, too. If you don't already have one, you can get the Netgear R6700 router for just $90 right now because it has its own $10 off on-page coupon. These two devices should work well together.

We always recommend buying your own cable modem to avoid the rental fees major ISPs charge. And the CM500 is a great machine to do that with because it's a modern device capable of handling some of the fastest plans available.

With DOCSIS 3.0 and 16x4 channel bonding, the CM500 is capable of speeds up to 680Mbps. It's compatible with Windows and Mac and works with every major browser. It works with every major ISP, too, including Comcast, Spectrum, Cox, Charter, and others.

Netgear provides a one-year limited warranty.
