In this day and age, a modem does not need a USB port.

Yes it does , like for example in my dualband router I use my 2.0 USB Drive , I copie files from PC and then stream on laptop which makes it perfect, rather then creating media server on my pc this way my PC does not have to be on for this.

Especially since most people connect their modems to routers.

Why not put your USB 2.0 drive directly into your laptop?

Kind of silly, but people will fight tooth and nail for perceived "convience". You have other options such as using cloud networks, getting a proper networked storage drive or other things that don't use the slow USB ports.
