Question

Cable modem and router options

I am moving and the new location does not have good service for AT&T internet so I am going back to cable. I was spoiled with fiber to my door where I live now. I am going to buy by own equipment. I have read one or two negatives about the Surfboard 6580, which seemed like a no brainer. Am I being paranoid? I need stability more than top speed. Good modem router combinations?

Thanks

Be sure to check with your cable company,

the equipment you buy are in their approved list.

What cable company is this? I thought AT&T is the only fiber optic game in town.
