Generally if you need a cable modem, you're also going to need a router. It's nice when they come together like in this bundle that includes the Netgear Nighthawk R6700 router and the Netgear CM500 cable modem for $119.92 on Amazon. The bundle itself has been around for a few months but it usually sells around $170 or even higher (as high as $200 at one point). The drop to $120 is a match for the lowest price we've seen.
Sometimes these bundles like to trick you. They put one pretty decent item with a slightly less decent item and call it a deal because they're trying to offload the crap onto you. That is definitely not the case this time because these are both excellent devices.
The Nighthawk R6700 is an awesome router with almost 18,000 user reviews giving it 4.2 stars. It has high-powered antennas and has technology that boosts range, speed, and performance. It works well in homes with a lot of Wi-Fi devices, which most homes are these days.
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. It has more than 1,300 user reviews giving it 4.3 stars.
We always recommend buying your cable modem to avoid rental fees, and this bundle right here is one of the best ways we've seen to do just that.
