Re: Don't like the fee?

At $139 it isn't really problem solved. Of course I could get a used one cheaper off Amazon or Ebay but that is a pig in a poke. It may be able to be activated or it may not.
Either way, it is an increase in price. That is the problem.

Edit.
In addition, I checked the approved list and don't see any modems on there that support telephone service.

You guys have 8x4 channel bonding online in NYC though. That couple bucks a month is actually going toward upgrades.

This could be a problem. The D3 modems on the approved list seem to support up to 4x4 bonded channels. Can a firmware upgrade address this?

No, it's a hardware chip limitation. Updating firmware won't change that.

From what I understand, the D3 Motorolla models listed in the screenshot support 8x4 channel bonding.

I paid more than that for my first 28.8k modem, back in the day when they cost real money.

Voice modems become free once you stop using them for Internet service.

I just saw that and now it makes even less sense.

It's s--- stupid, and I don't know how upgrading modems to IPv6 can cost that much to begin with.
