If there’s one thing your cable company loves more than anything else, it’s getting money for nothing. And if you’re using a cable modem supplied by your cable company to connect to the internet, you’re paying them money for nothing. Every month they charge you a $10 model rental fee just to have the ability to connect to their service and pay another $40, $50, $60, or more for your internet plan. But now it’s time to stop the madness. Pick up a TP-Link TC-7610 DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem on Amazon and follow the instructions in the box to activate it with Comcast, Charter, Spectrum, Optimum, or whatever other company you use. Then rent your current modem to your ISP and they’ll have no choice but to stop charging you that $10 monthly fee. You’ll save $120 a year! And even better, your cable company will be so pissed off.
