You obviously hate overpaying for internet service as much as anyone else, but you might not realize that you don’t have to overpay quite as much as you probably are. Cable companies charge customers between $8 and $10 each month to rent a modem, but they almost never tell customers that they have the option to buy their own modem and eliminate that monthly fee. The NETGEAR CM400-1AZNAS Cable Modem works with Comcast, Spectrum, Cox, Optimum, and any other cable-based ISP, and it’s only $50 on Amazon. Set it up, activate it by following the instructions in the box, return your old rented modem to your ISP, and you’ll save up to $120 per year in fees. If you have a fast internet plan and need gigabit speeds, check out this model.
