Posted On August 8, 2021
Comcast has a new X1 cable modem that’s rated as one of the best value options in the industry, according to data from Net Neutrality Watch.
The new modem from Comcast is an update of the X1, which was released back in 2017 and is now available for purchase.
The X1 has the same features and performance as the X2, but comes with an additional feature set that allows for increased bandwidth for video streams, improved wireless speeds and a better battery life.
The new X4 is available for $119.99 with one year of data and $199.99 plus tax.
The company also has a similar model called the X4A for $199 or $249.99, with one month of data, and two years of data for $399.99.
The original X1 is still available for the same price as its successor, with its latest price being $69.99 and two months of data.
The most expensive X1 model, however, is the X5, which has a starting price of $599 and two weeks of data with one-year of data included.
The X1 was discontinued in 2017, but has been in service since 2019, when the company rebranded the X3 as the A-Series modem.
The A-series model is more powerful than the X6, which is still in service.
It also features a larger number of wireless channels, higher-speed 802.11ac Wi-Fi, a faster USB 3.0 port, a USB Type-C port, HDMI out and a microSD card slot.
The B-series is the most expensive model, with a starting $999 and two-year data.
Both models feature dual-band 802.15ac Wi
