I'd pay $7 per month to have Arris or Motorola equipment at Grandma's house. The Cisco and Ubee equipment she has is junk. I talk to her on Time Warner phone and there is static on the line. I would love to have an Arris modem on her Internet and phone and Motorola set top boxes on her TVs.
We had nothing but trouble with Motorola and RCA cable modems - problems that went away when we obtained Cisco-Scientific Atlanta-Webstar modems. Unfortunately, with the "rental fee" program now in place, we're facing having to buy Moto.
The Moto pay-tv STBs are equally bad - mini space-heaters with slow processors and inept menu structures. Unfortunately, there is no alternative.
