Nighthawk AC1900-C7000 And AT&T Fiber Optics

I am getting ready to switch from Xfinity cable internet to AT&T Fiber Optics, that they claim is 1000Mbs, which I am sure is not actual speed. Anyway I already have a Netgear Nighthawk AC1900-Model C7000. Does anyone know if this modem/router will work? Or does anyone have any other suggestions that will offer better performance?

   I know approximately nothing about "AT&T Fiber Optics", but, unless
whatever they give you emulates a cable-TV-type interface, which seems
very unlikely, a Cxxxx cable modem+router will be pretty useless.  I'd
guess that you'll need a router which has an Ethernet WAN/Internet
interface, which is conspicuously missing from Cxxxx models.

 

   You might check with the (new) ISP, but I'd guess that practically
any plain-old router would work.
