One of the easiest ways to save a few buck each month is to get your own cable modem if you are using cable internet. I looked at my internet service provider and they charge 12 dollars a month. When I did some research online, you can see that the average cost of rental is around 14 dollars a month. A cable modem only costs around 60-70 dollars, and with that kind of calculations, the investment will pay for itself in just a few months.
Here are a few tips to keep in mind when you pick out a cable modem:
- Make sure that the modem you buy is compatible with your ISP – this is very simple to do, usually a quick call to your ISP will solve it, or you can just log in to your ISP website to see if your potential new equipment is compatible.
2. Make sure you get dual band.
