Comcast usually charges about $10 a month for you to rent a cable modem, which is $120 a year, and Add the "taxes and fees" that Comcast layers onto your bill and maybe the cost is $140 a year. Wow.
WHAT ARE YOU DOING? STOP!!!
Cable modems are inexpensive! You can buy a new, modern, blazing fast, Comcast-certified cable modem for less than $40 from Amazon.
- Buy this cable modem, the TP-Link TC-7610-E
- Unplug your Comcast rental cable modem
- Plug in your modern, newly purchased cable modem
- Restart your WIFI router (unplug it for 30 seconds, and then plug it back in)
- Wait a couple minutes
- Go to any website
- Comcast will put up a page instead of the website
- Log into Comcast using your Comcast account to enable the new modem
- The modem will be ready to go in minutes.
- Return the crappy rented modem to Comcast so they will stop charging you for it.
- Make sure you get a receipt when you return the modem. Keep that receipt.
- Verify that Comcast stopped charging you a modem rental fee on your monthly bill
- After four months, buy yourself a nice $10 gift each and every month.
