Best in class

I got the MG8725 to replace an Arris Surfboard G36, which has similar specs but proved flaky, frequently dropping devices from my network. By contrast, the MG8725 has proven to be rock solid: Everything that connects to it stays connected. I’m very happy I made the upgrade!

MG 8725 Combo Router/Modem is Awesome!

I am a Cox subscriber (Ultimate Internet 500 MB) who was renting an Arris Panoramic WiFi Gateway (13.00) and Customer Care (10.00) a
month with frequent buffering issues in every room of a 3,000 sf single-story home w/2 WiFi extenders. After a lengthy search for a DOCSIS 3.1, WiFi 6 combo router, I found the MG 8725. Although, it is more expensive than others (360.00), it delivers superb performance in every room, no buffering, dead spots or extenders needed. Plug and play setup in less than 15 mins with MotoSync App. Only issue was contacting Cox to change modem config setup in their system, which they said could be completed online (wishful thinking...it doesn't work). I am an extremely happy Motorola customer now, I highly recommend this without hesitation, and it has a 2 year warranty!

Spectrum activation will be rough, but this thing is a BEAST!

This router is not on the Spectrum approved devices list yet, but it will work using their TG1672G router information. Took about an hour and a half and escalation due to issues with their tools, but no regrets, this thing is worlds better than my old SBG6782. Pulling 370mb through Xbox series S on a 300mb plan, couldn’t touch 150mb before so much larger upgrade that I anticipated. (Rochester, NY for reference) App is fantastic and setup was a breeze, my lazy arse even used the old SSID and password so everything just rejoined the network when setup was complete. Fantastic purchase and couldn’t recommend more for those looking for a sweet router/modem combo!

Typical Motorola Product - Great

I have had great success with Motorola products and this is no exception! I really loved the original flip phones, reliable, indestructible, high quality and easy to use. The Motorola MG8725 continues in that same vein although indestructible is not something to worry about since it sits on a shelf. Easy to set up and use, hardest part was getting is set up with Spectrum, which only took a few minutes as I ad to call Spectrum to get it initialized. Very happy so far and I don't expect this to change. Highly recommend this cable modem/router.
