Re: [TWC] New Modem Lease Fee NYC - Gripe, buy new or rent. Hmmmm $3.95 a month rental for a $135.00 modem (extreme)? If I bought it, it would take 33 months for me to cover my purchase in what I save from TWC. The warranty is for only a year. If it dies after 12 months, I'll have to buy a new $135.00 modem (adding another 33 months). In 33 months, most definitely a newer, faster version will be available. If I decide to upgrade the service to ultimate or downgrade to a slower cheaper service plan, the modem I bought will not work.
I have the new TWC installed SBG6580 modem at my house. $3.95 a month gets me a new modem, service if I have issues, replacement if it craps out and allows me to upgrade/downgrade the service if I choose to. The service also provides newer equipment when it becomes available.
You decide what you want to do. I'll stay with the rental.
