Last year, a Florida man was arrested and charged with wire fraud after allegedly stealing nearly $1 million worth of cable service. Seriously, you can read the story right here. We would obviously never condone a crime, but we can also sort of empathize since cable companies have been overcharging us for years. Instead of breaking the law though, you should get back at them by picking up a TP-LINK TC-7610 DOCSIS 3.0 (8×4) Cable Modem on sale on Amazon. Activate it on any cable ISP and return the modem you’re using now, and you’ll save up to $120 a year when your cable company removes the bogus modem rental fee you’re being charged each month.
