Every modem rental fee you pay to your ISP is padding for their bottom line, and a total rip-off for you. Fortunately, you can buy your own modem for a relatively small upfront cost, and knock a few bucks off your monthly bill.
There's a general consensus that Motorola's SB6141 is the best modem for most cable internet subscribers, but it usually runs in the $80-$90 range. Today only though, you can score a refurb from Woot for $58 shipped. It'll pay for itself eventually no matter what it costs, but this is a rare opportunity to save a decent chunk of change on this particular model. [Refurb Motorola Surfboard SB6141 Modem, $58]
