Modem - Router for Comcast / Xfinity :

I am trying to purchase the comcast / xfinity internet service and for that, I need
Docsis 3.0 system any good modem may be at 300-35 mbps can transfer the signals,..

It could be Arries, Netgear, Motorola, or so company,..

Also, I need at least 2-4 outlet ports on back, so I do not need to buy a separate Router,..

I have many models in mind and confused about which is better and why,..

I may buy the speed around 50 / 50 sped only and not higher speeds, as they are expensive,..

Does all come as router and Modem as one combined piece?

What diff it makes if there are two versus 4 outlets on the back ?

Could you extend any input or advice among these modems,.. Xb3 or XB6? Or XGB3? Which is better? Why ?

My System

Any hardware which they provide will handle the speeds of the package which you select.

I recommend a separate modem and router as opposed to a modem/router combo unit.

You could rent the hardware from Comcast, or buy your own, which would save money in the long run but reduces the amount of tech support Comcast will provide. So it depends on your skill level.
