Pull out your cable bill right now. On second thought, keep it in your filing drawer — we don’t want to ruin your day. If you were going to whip out your cable and internet bill though, you’d see all sorts of ridiculous fees that tack a ridiculous amount of money onto your already pricey monthly bill. What you might not know, however, is that you can completely eliminate the modem rental fee on that bill, which amounts to between $8 and $10 each month depending on your provider. Just pick up a Motorola MB7420 DOCSIS 3.0 686Mbps Cable Modem, activate it using the instructions in the manual, and return your old modem to your cable internet provider — you’ll start saving up to $120 each year the moment you do.
