Nighthawk CAX80 Approved Modems Review
Just What The Doctor Ordered
I am glad to finally see Netgear take the lead on a cable modem class. The CAX80 promises to be a best seller by the end of 2020. It has everything that a modem should have in today’s ever-advancing cable internet. With everyone and everything, and I mean everything, relying on the Internet, this is just what we need.
