Editor's Notes

January 03, 2019:

Included some combination routers as well as stand-alone items. These items live within a similar price point, but some, like the Arris Surfboard SBV3202, are more basic than others for buyers who don't want to bother with extras. All picks provide a great range of connectivity and most are equipped with DOCSIS 3.1 technology.
