How much do you pay each month for home internet service? $30? $50? $80? More? Did you know that if you’re using a cable modem that was supplied to you by your cable company or fiber internet provider, you’re also paying an extra $8-$10 each month just so that you have the ability to pay $30, $50, $80 or more for home internet service? It’s absurd, and you can put a stop to it right now by purchasing your own cable modem. All you have to do is buy a compatible modem, activate it, and return your leased modem to your ISP. Then, like magic, that bogus monthly modem rental fee will vanish into thin air.

Wondering what modem to purchase? Amazon is offering nice discounts on the Linksys CM3016 Cable Modem and the Linksys CM3024 Cable Modem right now, both of which are compatible with Comcast, Time Warner Cable, Cox, Charter and most other cable ISPs.
