NETGEAR CM500

The NETGEAR CM500 cable modem is ideal for XFINITY Blast and Extreme customers. However, it is compatible with almost every cable provider. The CM500 is for speed tiers mostly up to 300 Mbps. ​It is Cable Labs and DOCSIS 3.0 certified and is 16X faster than 2.0 devices.


Next to the ARRIS SB6141, this cable modem is one of the best-selling modems of all time. I own one and have been using it with Comcast for over two years now. Not once have I had a problem with it. My subscribed speed is 100 Mbps and it keeps up with it continuously. This modem has been a perfect fit for my XFINITY service. I highly recommend the NETGEAR CM500 to anyone looking for a modem for speeds up to 300 Mbps.

Our Review Of The CM500 Cable Modem

This is a good modem for Comcast if you subscribe to speeds up to 300 Mbps. If you intend on boosting your speed with XFINITY in the near future, consider a DOCSIS 3.1 modem. Although more expensive, a 3.1 modem is backward compatible with 3.0. A 3.1 modem would be the last you would need for at least 10 years, provided it lasts that long.
