Comcast Internet Subscriber? Save $7 or more per month!
If you are currently an Internet Only Comcast subscriber you can save $7 per month on your cable bill. Over the past two years, Comcast has raised the modem rental fee from $3 to $7 per month. I o have had your cable account for more than a year, you have already purchased Comcast at least one of these modems and chnaces are they are going to raise the rates yet again next year!
A compatible cable modem is about $73 at Amazon. Doing the math, it is easy to see that owning your own cable modem will save you money over time. Unfortunately, if you are also paying for Comcast Digital Voice, this is not a solution as you will still have to pay for the telephone equipment.
Why buying a Comacast compatible cable modem is now better than renting
Three years ago the cable modem rental fee was $36.00 per year. Modems were easily $150 and Comcast was responsible for replacing it if it failed. About two years ago the price went to $72.00 a year. Cable modems were still $150 so it was still worth the replacement “warranty”, sort of.
Now Comcast has risen the price to $84.00 per year and modems have come down closer to $72.00. Based on past performance, Comcast is going to raise the rates yet again next year. Buy now and start saving today!
I suggest the Motorola 6121 DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem for Comcast Users.
