Re: [Connectivity] Comcast & Getting Your Own Cable Modem...

Sorry, I should have been clearer. Comcast provides firmware updates, but it is not a direct part of their business (as it would be for modem manufacturers). They may provide an update for your particular modem, but you really can't be PO'ed if they don't. Also, in my opinion, they should not be creating and pushing these updates, but instead should work with the modem manufacturers and have them release the updates. What happens if a Comcast-pushed firmware updates bricks the modem you own, not rent? I can only imagine the finger pointing when you call Comcast to complain. Anyway- this is just my view of it.
