Imagine that. It was only a few years back that I decided to buy my own modem to save what was then just a $3/month monthly rental for the Internet side of my phone/internet Arris telephony DOCSIS 2.0 modem.
And now it's going up to $8/month for a DOCSIS 3.0 modem, which is a 33% rate increase for something that was only recently priced at $6/month. And a 167% increase over the original $3/month price just a few years ago when they first started charging for the internet modem hardware.
Makes it that much easier to cost-justify buying your own modem.
