Amazon offers the ARRIS Surfboard S33 DOCSIS 3.1 cable modem for $ 149.99 shipping. Also at Best Buy. Decreasing from $ 200, this is the second best price we've ever watched and surpasses our last mention by an additional $ 20, reaching $ 1 of the all-time low. Ready to replace the rented modem, ARRIS S33 allows you to save up to $ 120 per year in fees. This ARRIS modem has a 2.5 Gb / s Ethernet port on the back, along with 1 Gb / s for a secondary network. You'll also find the latest technology here, which allows the modem to use up to 32 DOCSIS 3.0 channels downstream and eight upstream, as well as two OFDM DOCSIS 3.1 channels downstream and upstream for total network speeds up to 1.2 Gb / s. We recommend that you check with your ISP to confirm compatibility before purchasing, although ARRIS says that its modem should work with Cox, Spectrum or Xfinity. Go below for more details.
If the modem provided by the ISP you are replacing has a built-in Wi-Fi router, then we also recommend that you purchase a refurbished eero. Entering 59 USD on Amazon, this HomeKit 5 compatible Wi-Fi router is a great way to completely replace your existing all-in-one solution without paying a single rental fee. You can easily add more eero routers as time goes on for wider coverage and even upgrade to Wi-Fi 6 further once the time is up.
However, if you're ready to step into the mesh network for the entire house, skip the renovated eero and just pick up a pack of them before Black Friday. That's right, eero is already on sale on Black Friday with prices from $ 77. There are quite a few options to choose from here, so be sure to check out our previous coverage to find out all the ways you can save.
