Every time we write about cable modems here at the BGR Deals team, we get thank you emails. Every. Single. Time. Why? It’s simple: ISPs overcharge for cable and internet service, so people love learning that they can steal some money back from their cable provider each month. If you’re not already away, all you need to do is pick up a good cable modem like the TP-Link TC-7610 High Speed Cable Modem, which is compatible with Comcast, Spectrum, Cox, and most other standard providers. Set it up in place of your current modem, activate using the included instructions, and then return your current modem you your cable company. Once you do that, you’ll chop either $96 or $120 off your internet bill each year, depending on how much your cable company charges for its modem rental fee.
