For $33.49 you can consider getting a DOCIS 3.0 modem also and never have to worry about a cable modem again and will future proof faster internet speeds.

That modem is not on my approved list for Time Warner, maybe different for others.

Well in this thread it states it works with TWC, but it wont work with Comcast.

That's significantly more expensive though.

Here is a great article on how to avoid Time Warner cable modem fees.

http://gizmodo.com/5948616/how-to...rental-fee

I clicked on the link while on LifeHacker earlier today. I even looked at this modem for a friend who has TWC. I can sum up the article on how to avoid the fees: Buy your own modem.


"Currently, all you need is DOCSIS 2.0, and given the glacial rate at which Time Warner upgrades its infrastructure, don't expect a DOCSIS 2.0 modem to be out of date anytime soon.

In fact, the cheapest modem above, the Motorola SB5101, is rated for up to 30Mbps upstream capacity—way way more than the whopping 5Mbps maximum in New York City. Not to mention that it's infinitely better than the RCA piece of crap some clueless technician installed in your house anyway. So go for it.

If you buy your own modem, it'll likely pay for itself (compared to equivalent rental fees) in less than a year. And you'll likely use it way longer than that; you're going to have Internet forever—no matter how bad Time Warner sucks. Best of all? The money doesn't go to a money-sucking corporate scum brigade.
"



(BTW is CBS still blocked? I thought I read they told CBS they would put them back on a la carte. Then CBS blocked all TWC users from accessing CBS online, even if they didnt subscribe to TV or aren't in one of the major area codes that CBS has been blocked.????????)

i am on comcast and my sbg900(docsis 2.0) has died about year and half ago so i replaced it with sbg6580(docsis 3.0). At that time i was on cheapest 15/5 plan and was getting around 10-15 down. After switching to 6580 my speeds went up to over 22/7, i am now on 50/10 plan with the same modem and constantly getting upwards of 85 down. My point is if you're paying for higher speeds and not using docsis3.0 you are likely not getting full speeds, i doubt it matters whether its comcast or TWC or any other cable ISP.

Google and Amazon can get together so I can get only the channels I want with S&S. (that bill will never pass in my lifetime though)

I have been getting a discount for the past 2 years, but standard should cost $49.99 without a discount.
