Not Understanding

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?

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.

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.

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?
