How to save money
on your Comcast modem
Julian Kurland | May 25, 2016
Thousands of users are unknowingly wasting money through Comcast by paying for an unnecessary monthly modem rental. Recently, Comcast raised their monthly modem rentals from $8 to $10 a month. Many Comcast customers pay this monthly fee for their modem, because they feel as if it is the easiest and cheapest choice. However, with a little research, it becomes obvious that buying your own modem is a much better deal.
While the technologically clueless may argue that buying a modem is complicated, it is not complicated at all if you have the right information in your hands.
Amazon.com is probably your best bet for finding a great deal on a modem. Any DOCSIS 3.0 modem you find will be up to date and should be easily compatible to your Comcast service. These modems sell for around $60-$100. If you plan on being a Comcast member for longer than a maximum of ten months, than buying your modem will save you money.
The difference in the $40 range between compatible modems will depend on how up to date it is. While you can find a compatible modem for Comcast for as low as fifty or sixty dollars, the $100 modem will more than likely allow you to have faster connection if you ever decide to upgrade in the future.
In order to make sure you are buying a compatible modem, check Comcast’s website for a list of compatible models. You can find this information at mydeviceinfo.comcast.net.
Don’t waste $120 a year on a modem rental. Do your research and make the smart decision to buy your own. You will be thankful in the long run when you see that $10 fee disappear on your Comcast bill!
