Re: Not Understanding
said by pnh102:When Charter was charging $7 a month for them I didn't. I bought mine beause of the $7 fee not out of some desire to have my own modem. Now that Charter gives them out for nothing why would I buy one? If the thing breaks I'm have to buy a new one. With Charter giving them out for free if it breaks I get a brand new one at no cost.
Cable modems aren't terribly expensive and they are (mostly, but not entirely) universal among all cable systems. Why would anyone rent one at all?
How often has your cable modem broken? I've never had it happen. Also, I have a spare Charter cable modem that I have no need for taking up space and it actually works on TWC and Comcast too as I used it when I couldn't find my other cable modem.
said by jjeffeory:Our first one went kaput after 6 years. Anyways as I said if Charter is leasing them for free what do I care about owning one?
