We all know that buying your own modem can save you money in the long run, and to that end, we’ve posted a lot of deals on Motorola SURFboards over the last few years. Today though, this incredibly fast NETGEAR alternative is marked down to just $80, and might be worth a look.

On paper, this actually supports nearly double the maximum download speed of the ultra-popular SB6141: 680mbps vs. 343. Odds are, your cable internet isn’t that fast right now, but you’re buying this to save money in the long run, so you want it to be as futureproof as possible. Just check with your ISP to make sure it’s compatible before you purchase; most maintain lists on their websites. [NETGEAR DOCSIS 3.0 High Speed Cable Modem, $80]
