Did you see the story a few weeks ago about the Florida man who stole $1 million worth of cable service? We definitely don’t condone crime of any kind, but we can also sort of see where he was coming from. Thankfully, we have some good news: you don’t have to commit a felony or a crime of any other kind to take up to $120 per year right out of your cable provider’s pocket. Just get a TP-Link TC-7610 DOCSIS 3.0 (8×4) Cable Modem on Amazon, activate it with any cable ISP by following the instructions in the box, and then return the cable company modem you have now. You’ll enjoy the same quality internet service but you’ll get it without having to pay between $8 and $10 a month in bogus modem rental fees!
