Comcast in the southern region is bundling home phone service at no additional charge for 1 year. Personally, I'll really barely use it but at least it's included at no additional charge!! The down side is you must use their modem which is 10.00 extra per month.

Suffering the Comcast gateway and its attendant Wi-fi hot spot (that can usually be diabled) isn't worth their phone service.

I don't think you HAVE to use their modem but the modem they usually issue for Xfinity w/voice ( an Arris TG862G ) runs about $200.
Oh, ok. I was just under the assumption you had to use their modem for phone. I know you can buy your own modem for internet. I have their Arris modem dual band modem and my Roku can pick up the 5mhz band. My tablet uses 2.4mhz. My speed is 150 down, but with an eithernet cord I can get around 160 down on my laptop :clapping

I have some Comcast voice modems that include the router and wifi for $100

BTW, the phone service is not free. There is a double play bundle for $10 less starting at $79 or $89 per month depending on the region.
My bill says voice says TN voice--$0.00
I'm also getting my X1 DVR free for 1 year, modem free for 1 year , and Cinemax for 2 dollars for a year when I threatened to cancel!!
