What can you buy with 4 bucks?

6 pack of beer?
A pack of smokes?
A meal at a fast food joint?
Maybe a gallon of gas or a little more?
A movie rental?

Yes, the fee sucks, but is it worth suing over, as the lawyers are the ones who win and TW will just raise rates to cover the damages and court fees. As well as to keep collecting the 4 dollars [only this time it will be hidden in the regular subscription price, instead of a separate charge]

What can you buy with $48? Because that's how much you're paying a year to rent the modem from TWC.

Besides, the fee is $4 a month, now. When have you ever known a cable company not to raise rates? A couple years from now, it might be $5, then $6. Before you know it, people are being charged $10 a month for the modem.

$4 is actually one of the lower modem rental fees that I know of.
Most of them are some stupid number like $7 or $9!! Total freaking ripoff and I hope they get their a**es sued off, even if I'm not a one of their customers!
