Re: Modem rental?
What I like about Dane's responses at
Dane and John Fitzgerald stated the rental policy was done to pay for the cost of the modem pool and support infrastructure.
What I do not like:
1. Disclosure of the new policy approximately a little over 1 business day before the change
2. Lack of a modem purchase option. I personally would not mind if there were an option to pay for the modem at its cost along with some support cost over a period of around x months.
I wonder what this policy implies for those who will get fiber for new rollouts. Will they be subjected to a rental fee for their CPE? What is Sonic's policy if someone who is on legacy DSL and they can get Fusion? Will they be subject to the rental fee?
