I hope you know Xfinity is Comcast so comcast is doing this fee so you probably want to edit your comment on that one.
Huh?! I've had my own modem with Comcast (Xfinity is just a brand name) for 10 years and there it NO fee.
Do you have Xfinity Voice?
I do. I have two modems. The one for voice I pay for monthly, the one for data there is no charge. I could run my internet off the voice modem but I would have to run a new CAT5 cable and I just don't want to go to the effort when there is no benefit.
Apparently Comcast monitors the voice modems as I received a new battery in the mail because my modem was indicating the battery was failing.
