I have Spectrum currently as my WiFi provider. I am really thinking about purchasing the Arris Surfboard Max Pro WiFi 6 Router. Will I need to keep Spectrum as my WiFi provider or just purchase a modem for the Arris Surfboard Router to work?

Arris Surfboard Max Pro WiFi 6 Router will work only with WAN connection so you need to internet from the service provider to supply internet. So you can use any modem to connect the Arris router.

You do need a modem. I’d check with spectrum as in some area’s, they still don’t have a modem rental fee. If they do, then I’d buy one. If there isn’t, I’d go with their provided one.
