If you subscribe to cable internet service, you’re overpaying. No, seriously… it doesn’t even matter what plan you choose or how much it costs, because if you use a modem that you got from your ISP then you’re overpaying. You probably don’t even realize it, but your cable provider charges you $10 each month just to use its modem. That’s $120 per year! Instead of continuing to burn all that money, get yourself a Motorola MB7420 Cable Modem and activate it using the instructions in the box. Then once you return your old modem to your cable company, you’ll save $10 per month!
