There’s really only one way to get back at cable companies like Time Warner Cable and Comcast for all the years they’ve spent overcharging you for service: stop paying them so much money. It sounds simple enough, but cable companies spend a small fortune lobbying the government so that they can enjoy monopolies in many regions. If you don’t have another company to turn to, how are you supposed to negotiate a better rate?

If you listen to us, you can save over $100 on your cable and internet bill each year without negotiating at all. Simply pick up a TP-LINK DOCSIS 3.0 (16×4) High Speed Cable Modem, which is on sale on Amazon this week for $69.95. Once you set it up and return your cable company’s modem, they’ll drop their bogus $10 modem rental fee from your monthly bill.
