TP-Link Archer TC7650
High-speed cable modem
Our take on the TP-Link Archer TC7650 by Crutchfield's Eric Angevine
Faster internet access and lower monthly cable bills
When you use the modem your cable company provides, you're often getting an older model, and paying a monthly fee for the "privilege". The TP-Link Archer TC7650 provides super-fast internet access — up to 1029Mbps downstream, and 206Mbps upstream — and pays for itself in no time by eliminating those rental fees from your bill.
When you want to add fast, reliable Wi-Fi®, consider picking up a wireless router to go along with your new modem.

Why did you buy this?
My modem, currently a Motorola Surfboard, is 5 years old and is due for an upgrade [ JORDAN May 08, 2018 ]
I have Xfinity, got a letter from them this week telling me I need to upgrade my modem, looked on Amazon for reviews. This seemed to be a really good one for the money, used my reward points to lower the cost. Let's hope it's worth it! My current Modem is a Surf Board 6121. [ Stephen Dec 03, 2017 ]
