Because you are currently reading this, I’m going to make three assumptions…
1) You have fine taste in A/V writers.
2) You are currently alive.
3) You have a barely concealed disdain for your Internet Service Provider and would like to pay them as little as possible while retaining the maximum surfing speeds.
According to the American Customer Satisfaction Index, American ISPs now have the lowest customer satisfaction ranking of any industry in the country. And bottoming out that grim list of corporate scum and villainy is Comcast and Time Warner, the two most hated companies in the US. So, congrats, guys! One of the reasons why we seem to hate our ISP so vehemently is the growing cost of service coupled with horrific customer service and reliability and speed issues.
One of the things at the root cause of these issues could very well be the out-of-date, old-tech, last-gen modem you ISP provided you when you signed up for service way back in the day. There’s also good chance that your ISP is charging you a monthly rental fee for that modem. These fees range from $6-8 and give you the “privilege” of using something you probably hate. But for around $80, you can buy one of the highest rated modems available...
