Comcast Digital Voice Modem Is Frickin’ Huge

Comcast Voice Modem

So, here at the office we got rid of Vonage and added Comcast Digital Voice to our cable package. Aside from the hike on the Comcast bill, the biggest change we have noticed in this process is the insanely large telephony modem that they gave us to replace the little Motorola cable modem that we knew and loved. I mean, we understand that the new modem includes a battery backup that allows us to maintain phone service in the event of a power outage (although Internet drops out thoroughly in the same situation,) but what should we make of the two times the phone service did cut out? Oh, wait - that was due to Comcast performing “standard area upgrades.” Sweet.
