Some cable companies go out of their way to make sure you don’t know about an incredibly easy way to shave $100 or more off of your Internet bill each year. If you’re using a modem provided by your ISP, that company is charging you a monthly fee of between $8 and $10 to rent it. What you might not be aware of is that you can buy your own cable modem, return the one you’ve rented, and eliminate that fee entirely. Check out the D-Link DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem, which is on sale right now on Amazon for just $29.99. That’s right — all you need to do in order to save $100+ a year is buy a $30 box.
